Venezuela Gastronomic Festival 2015 @ Pullman KLCC

Here for Venezuelan Night at the Pullman KLCC on Friday. I am glad that we make it although the traffic to KL on Friday night was bad. Its Venezuela Gastronomic Festival 2015 so we learnt more about Venezuelan arts, culture and people at the same feast on their unique delicacies and cuisines.

So do you want to know what are the emblematic Venezuelan flavours? We had appetizers Arepa (cornmeal cake), Empanada (dried fried, stuffed corn flour patties), Cassava bread, Cachapas, Arroz Con Coco (coconut rice); main course such as Asado Negro (roasted beef caramel), Polvorosa de Pollo (chicken pot pie), Skate fish stew and desserts Quisillo (caramel flan), Marquesa and many more.

Overall it was a good experience to try the Venezuelan food and also to get to know more about their country. Who know I might be going there for holiday or work right?

I like the cachapas, the fresh corncake with cheese. It was make on the spot something like pancake with corn floor a little sweet and the cheese is salty. Another one is the empanada de pescado, the fish empanadas.

  4. What I love during festivals aside from the shows is the exhibit, like what you shared above, and it's a photo exhibit. Aside from that, is the food. Have you tasted all of those? Esp. the shrimp with tamarind sauce.

  21. The Venezuelan Seafood cocktail looks like "Callos" in which I'd like to cook - the beef tripe. A similarity for Portuguese or Spaniards cuisine.
