Tequeños

Tequeño is a traditional and very popular Venezuelan snack food consisting of a spear of bread dough with white cheese in the middle formed into a breadstick and then usually fried in oil for 2 to 3 minutes at 190 °C.

Due to its popularity in parties, weddings, and other social events, many creative variations of the tequeño are now available ranging from a different assortment of gourmet cheeses to also introducing new ingredients such as chocolate, guava, etc. to provide a sweet alternative to the traditional recipe.

Currently we provide tequeños with the following fillings:

  • Original (with gourmet provolone cheese)
  • Raclette cheese
  • Mozzarella & oregano
  • Mozzarella & ham
