This is a typical food from my country (Venezuela). One of the foods that represent the country is called a pabellon.

The Creole Pavilion, consisting of cooked white rice, shredded meat, black beans, slices of fried ripe banana and whole white cheese. This dish consolidates the table of Venezuelans as one of the tastiest in the world.
