Pinchitos are also extremely popular in Venezuela, due the heavy influence Spain had in Venezuelan cuisine during many years. Pinchitos is one of the main dishes in Venezuelan barbecues, and are eaten almost during all year long. Besides lemon, bread, and wine (or beer, depending on the region), it is served usually with boiled yuca, or, in recent years, with cherry tomatoes. Pinchitos are sold in street food carts all around the country, especially during weekends. In some regions, Pinchitos are called "Pincho Americano" (American Brochette); but the recipe is just the same.
