Our Story

About Us

Founded in 2005 as a simple neighborhood food truck in the Washington Heights/ Inwood sector of Manhattan.  Patacon Pisao now serves the most authentic and critically acclaimed venezuelan cuisine in all New York City.  We are best known for our use of plantains.  Others who try to look like us attempt to imitate our artful creation of the classic, but there is only one.  Our generation-old family recipes represent the traditional flavors found in restaurants and street vendors in Venezuela.  Our casual atmosphere, generous portions, and affordable prices bring people from all parts of the Tri State and now the world to our doors.
