Merry Christmas عيد ميلاد مجيد Feliz Navidad С Рождеством

¡Feliz Navidad y próspero Año Nuevo!

For those who don't know the hallacas: you HAVE to try them one day. It won't be easy if you live outside Venezuela, specially if you don't know big Venezuelan communities in your area, but one day you have to try them. And then you will want to try them once more and more and more and more. Every population has its national dish and almost everyone is 'proud' of the national dish (well, as if we had invented a national dish ourselves), but hallacas are considered delicious by almost anyone.

Let's hope Venezuela and the World have a better 2009 and let's work for it, no matter what with recessions and the like.


  1. Hola Kepler, since 5 days I am eating hallacas with all kind of different ingredients, guess soon I cant see them anymore :-(. Still the best (because a lot of meat in it) makes my wife :-)

  2. Feliz Navidad y próspero Año Nuevo for you as well.
    No wonder. Some people exaggerate and really it hallacas non-stop
    And the thing is in Venezuela in the last few years people have been increasing the portions faster than elsewhere. One example: the cheese part of the cachapas I see there are now twice as thick as in 1995.
    Enjoy your time.
