Many of the items on the restaurant’s global tastes menu are Venezuelan or Mexican in origin. The Texqueños, thick cylinders of Venezuelan cheese and fried dough, and cachitos, pastries with bacon or ham, are Godoy’s signature creations, according to the news release.

In addition, Mastrantos offers cachapas (Venezuelan corn pancakes with barbacoa, cilantro and red onions), arepas (Mexican chorizo or ham, scrambled eggs, queso fresco and cilantro sauce) and during the holidays, pan de jamon: ham, bacon, raisins and olives wrapped in dough.
