Le Nouvel Observateur (2016) “Son restaurant Capucine, ouvert l’été dernier, compte déjà parmi les meilleures tables italiennes de Paris. Stefania Melis est l’une des chefs de file d’une nouvelle génération de chefs transalpins.”

Bululu Arepera

Essentially just a take-out counter and four tables, Bululu has a vegetarian-friendly menu of handmade arepas (a griddled, gluten-free corn flatbread) stuffed with avocado, Venezuelan cheeses, plantains, beans or meat. A single arepa makes for a substantial enough sandwich when paired with the excellent homemade plantain & yucca chips with guasacaca (a thin guacamole-like dip). Wash them down with sugar cane juice or Venezuelan rum-based tropical cocktails served in mason jars. Due to the small size, you’ll probably have to wait but turnover is fast. Arepas available to-go, too.
