Bushwick is home to two Guacuco establishments: Hotdogs and Arepas. You want to focus your attention on Arepas, where you'll eat thick corn patties packed with fillings like pernil (pork shoulder) and pabellon (beef, cheese, beans, plantains). This is a family-run establishment - it's named after the beach where the owner's mother was born, and it's that mother who's running the kitchen.
