There are places in Caracas (near downtown) where you can find a Chinese restaurant per block. Also, at any mall fair, whether large or small, you'll get a place where you can order rice, bittersweet chicken and ribs. Because yes, the Chinese food in Venezuela for the most part is true to the American version.
