Lunch with Los Amigos Invisibles
Max and Jason of Current TV join Venezuelan band Los Amigos Invisibles for a brunch of arepas and cachapas at Beverly Hills' famous gourmet java-joint Coupa Cafe.
The restaurant is run by Jean Paul Coupal, the French-Canadian owner of Cafe Arabica in Caracas.
The menu combines single-estate coffees from the finest fincas in Venezuela with hefty helpings of popular dishes such as Pabellon Criollo, a perico platter and parchita (passion fruit) bon bons made from Venezuelan cocoa.
The song "Yo No Se", which plays in the background, comes from Amigos Invisible's album "Superpop".
