Que Chevere

After four years behind the stove of the Venezuelan food truck Que Chevere, Orvid Cutler and Maria Fernanda expanded to a brick-and-mortar restaurant in downtown Mesa (a Main Street that has become something of a dining destination). The food is classically Venezuelan, with areaps, griddled corn flatbreads, leading the way. Pale, tall, and fragrant, these come as sides with plate-style dishes of shredded beef, rice, and beans. Loaded with fillings like shredded chicken and black beans, they come as main dishes. Plenty of sleeper hits fill out the menu. These include the Patacon, a sandwich "bunned" on fried plantains, and the Cachapa, a corn pancake packing hauntingly nuanced sweetness. A bar mixes tropical drinks. The kitchen rolls out hot stretchy tequenos, Venezuelan cheese sticks, every morning. New Normal: Curbside pickup is available. Call for takeout orders. And yes, there is still a Que Chevere at various outdoor events.
