Orinoco Die-hard Orinoco fans trot out the "winter escape" argument, but summer is when this Nuevo Venezuelan eatery morphs
into a genuine road-side taguarita, complete with warm breeze. While neophyte foragers jockey for position
on the South End's main thoroughfares, locals and visiting foodies head to this narrow hallway on quieter Shawmut for
bacon-wrapped, almond-stuffed dates-- not to mention the first or blind variety. Getting a table: Scoring one of the patio's
16 seats can be maddening, but grilled chicken and arepas--loaded with creamy guayanes cheese and other delights--travel well.
Order to-go and enjoy your picnic at Peters Park (where you can practice similar tongue-twisters).
