On top of Caracas

If you visit the Capital you have to go to El Avila, National Park that consist in mountainous region of the north central Venezuela, separating Caracas with the Caribbean Sea, and reaching a little bit more than 2.7 metres above sea level. You can go hiking, with an off road vehicle, or by cable car, have your pick.

There are plenty of things to do there, hiking expeditions, exercise in the famous Sabas Nieves, or enjoy a nice day and have lunch or dinner in Galipan. In Galipan you have breath taking views of La Guaira and Caracas, also you can wander around and have one of the best pork sandwiches around town, or just have some strawberries with cream. We decided to go to one of the most famous restaurants there Granja Natalia

The view
A place for relaxation and culinary treats, with the view of the Caribbean Sea, Chef Angel Sanchez Medina make sure to keep great standards with a menu of international flavours. We shared some Thai rolls, which were spot on, then as tradition we got some tequeños (cheese sticks), they were great, nice melted cheese, chicken skewers followed, they were quite good, with a peanut Thai sauce and coconut milk, finally a Spanish omelette (Tortilla), which was nicely prepared. 

Chicken skewers
My starter was the famous Natalia soup, tomato cream with carrots, onions, roasted garlic, and finally roasted almonds, spectacular, the flavour was great, nice balance. Then I went for the T Bone, a perfectly cooked meat at the grill, great flavour again.

All this mountain experience reminds me the Seinfeld episode “The Pool Guy” 

Kramer: Hello and welcome to Moviefone! Brought to you by the New York Times and HOT 97. Coming to theatres this Friday... Kevin Bacon, Susan Sarandon, you've got to get me over that mountain! NOO! There's no higher place than... Mountain High. Rated R. If you know the name of the movie that you'd like to see, press 1
