tequeño cachito menus

Tequeño is a snack, prepared with bread dough and white cheese. A stick of white cheese is wrapped with the dough and deep fried. It is one of the most popular Venezuelan snack foods at parties, especially weddings.

In other countries, like in Colombia, the Tequeño is known as Dedito de Queso. The Tequeño is getting famous world wide.

The name "Tequeño" comes from the town of "Los Teques", capital of the State of Miranda,
where it is believed this food was originated. The oldest known references to it come from the
first decade of the 19th century. At that time the richest families of Caracas would spend long
vacation periods in Los Teques, and it is believed that they started preparing them with the left
over dough of another Venezuelan food, "pastelitos".
