If you never had an Arepa you might be missing out. But possibly you never did because either you never heard of this S. American meal or you simply didn’t know where to get on… You are in luck! We have 2 great places where you can get them and won’t break your budget.
But before we tell you about those place, we think “knowledge is power” so here is the description of what exactly an Arepa is:
Arepa (Spanish pronunciation: [a-ɾepa]) i is a flat, round, unleavened patty of soaked, ground kernels of maize, or—more frequently nowadays—maize meal or maize flour that can be grilled, baked, fried, boiled or steamed.
The characteristics vary by color, flavor, size, and the food with which it may be stuffed, depending on the region. It can be topped or filled with meat, eggs, tomatoes, salad, cheese, shrimp, or fish depending on the meal. Source: Wikipedia
