This part of Gothamist is spending Thanksgiving in Barcelona, so while most minds are focused on mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie for next week's feasting, this brain's in Spain thinking about tapas and ceviches. Flor's Kitchen, with locations in both in the West (170 Waverly Place b/w 6th & 7th Ave) and East Village (149 1st Ave. b/w 9th & 10th St.) offers Venezuelan/Spanish cuisine; their menu offers fresh tuna, wild bass, salmon, and shrimp ceviches, an assortment of arepas (filled corn dough pockets) filled with beef, chicken, fish, vegetables, and cheese slathered in jalepeno sauce. Entrees are served with delicious ripe plantains and sides of salad, and cassava, all which you can wash down with fruit-filled sangria or one of their fresh juices: guava, passion fruit, tamarind, and sugar cane among others. Lastly, be sure to try one of their cachapas, a hot, fresh, corn pancake slathered in a gooey, irresistable Venezuelan cheese, which, if you're not a lactard(ed) cupcake eater, you can heartily enjoy.
Flor's Kitchen is located at 170 Waverly Place in the West Village and 149 1st Ave. in the East Village, Sunday - Thursday, 11 a.m. - 11 p.m., and Friday - Saturday, 11 a.m. - 12 p.m.
