This seasonal location of Caracas Arepa Bar is on the boardwalk at Rockaway Beach, and they serve the same excellent arepas as they do at their spots in the East Village and Williamsburg. Get a couple of those, as well as sangria or beers, and hang out at a picnic table. If it’s a summer Friday, Saturday, or Sunday, you might luck out with some live music.

La Isla Cuchifritos
We love La Isla Cuchifritos for the fact that a) it’s cheap and delicious, and b) it sort of feels like you’re grubbing in tropical Puerto Rico rather than not-so-tropical Brooklyn.
