A while back when I was living in Norwalk I walked around the corner and stumbled on this place and was blown away. The food was so amazing and tucked between a tatoo parlor and seedy bar and wasnt surprised years later when I saw Valencia on one of my favorite shows, Diners, Drive-ins and Drives.
Naturally, when I go home to Connecticut I try to make it to Valencia. This time I ordered to go and when looking at the menu its easy to get carried away…”lemme get a few of those empanadas, some of those arepas a couple of pork sandwiches, rice, plantains” and before you know it you have ordered enough food for the Venezuelan Army.
After lunch I was stuffed and happy that despite the being on TV and all the hoopla the place has received, it was still awesome. The only thing left to do was to slip into a food coma.
