Fuhgeddaboudit Food: Guacuco Hot Dogs

A restaurant in Bushwick is promising its customers a taste of Venezuela when they walk through the door.

Sara Molina co-owns Guacuco Hot Dogs on Starr Street and runs it with her family, cooking with her mother-in-law in the kitchen.

Molina says that while the food is at the center of their business, the customers really make it worth while.

"I love the people around here, it's very relaxed and different," she says. "Young people...we love the neighborhood."

The restaurant offers traditional Venezuelan dishes like arepas, or crispy dough filled with sweet plantains, beef, cheese and black beans.
