Had a Groupon so wanted to try Venezuelan food. Very different from anything I'd had before. I tried the sampler which gave a wide selection. Their shredded beef was very good. The cheeses were delicious too. Corn "arepa?" was sweet. I enjoyed all the food....More

Stopped in here for lunch. The Arepa's were on the mark, but my favorite item, and the one that I will come back for many times again, is the soup. A huge portion, with squash, chicken drumstick, yucca, potato, corn on the cob, and a...More

South American food is one of my favorites, so I was eager to try some authentic Venezuelan street food. We both had the Cachapa, which is a large stuffed, sweet, corn-flour pancake. The 'Traditional' is filled with a large amount of puffy white cheese. We...More

Although Venezuelan food has similarities to Cuban food which is common in Tampa, the differences are worth the trip to Nico's to try their wonderful food. Being married to a Venezuelan I've had authentic food for quite some time, and when I took her here...More
