Hola amigos! After an amazing start with the Venezuelan Christmas dinner this time I want to introduce you our national dish "Pabellón Criollo"
Pabellón Criollo is said to be representing the union of the Europeans, Africans and Indigenous, which all met in Venezuela after Columbus arrived in the Americas. This dish, indeed, displays three main colors: white (rice), black (beans) and brown (meat). You can also ornate this dish with some fried plantains (called “tajadas” in Venezuela). It is traditionally served with “arepas” (Venezuelan corn bread) and with some white cheese.
During this evening at our cozy flat I will explain you the recipies and the story behind the ingredients I use. We will have the chance to get to know more about Venezuelan food and culture. Let's create some Caribbean atmosphere during the cold Cracow winter!!!
As always be ready for some live music surprise, see you soon!

Hello food lovers! My name is Victor, I'm a musician from Caracas, Venezuela based in Cracow. I've been living in Europe since almost 11 years now. Cooking is my big passion together with music. I'd like to introduce you my country's cuisine and culture but also some other types of delicious food. Together with my girlfriend we'd like to invite you to our cozy place in the city center to spend an amusing time and eat food made with love.
That was amazing! Super tasty food, great atmosphere and the surprise no one expected but everyone enjoyed.
I truly enjoyed this Venezuelan dinner. I've been out of Venezuela for over 20 years, and I was longing the taste of real Venezuelan food. I got that, and more (as there was even live music) at Victor's place.
Victor also went the extra mile by preparing vegetarian dishes -which any Venezuelan person, or those who know the culture well enough, would say is impossible lol.
What's more. Victor fluently explained the ingredients and the history of the dishes in Polish, English and Spanish.
I truly recommend the dining experience at Victor's.
It was a very special evening! Thank you so much for the great food, nice atmosphere and a beautiful surprise! One can tell you put your heart into this dinner. It was delicious and you took care of everything: starters, traditional beverages, rum for tasting. I really loved the beans and sauces. I appreciate how open you were, sharing stories and culture, making sure everyone’s having good time. A little music concert was just a cherry on top :)
Dinner at Victor's place was great! Together with his girlfriend Dagna they are wonderful hosts. Food was delicious and there was a lot of it. For the first time I tried a typical venezuelan avocado paste and especial refreshing drink which were hits for me . Victor prepared himself very well for carnivores and vegetarians people. At the end of dinner, with his Venezuelan friend made a surprise for us - mini concert of folk songs . While listening you could move your thoughts for a moment to South America and feel caribbean energy :) !
It was super great and tasty! I felt full when I left the dinner :)
Highly recommend everyone!
This was my first Eataway experience and what an amazing experience it was! The food was hearty and filling and authentic Venezuelan! The creme de la creme was the live music performance by Victor and his friend who was visiting from Warsaw.
Would highly recommend this and looking forward to victor hosting again.
It was an amazing experience. Victor is not just an incredible chef but also a very entertaining and knowledgeable host. The food was delicious! and the atmosphere was very friendly. We were surprised with an unexpected performance of Venezuelan traditional music. Thanks a million for such a nice experience. Totally recommended.
OMG This was an amazing experience! I'm a Latino leaving in Krakow and can tell you this is the best Latino meal I tried here! I felt back at home :) The food was super delicious, authentic and more important there was I was super full :) I'm so happy that I joined and could interact with other very cool people :) Can't wait to join the next dinner organized by Victor!
1000% recommended! Dinner at Victor and Dagna was a real highlight of pre holidays period which is always very bysy and intensive for me. Finally, just a few days before Christmas I felt its spirit thanks to them, despite the fact that it was Venezuelan way;). All dishes were extremally delicious, but my top was definitely pan de jamon and dessert. Victor is a great cook, storyteller and host. I totally enjoyed the food, atmosphere and time spent with his fantasic guests.
We had the opportunity to visit Victor and tried his amazing dinner on 20.12.2019. The food was delicious. We could also learn about the history of the dishes which Victor served us. The atmosphere was cozy and friendly. Victor is helpful and carying person. That was our first time on eataway dinner but thanks to Victor and his amazing girlfriend we felt like on the family event. We really recommend this host and we hope that we will visit him again during the new event in the future.
