What is an Arepa?

An AREPA is a handmade corn meal flat bun made of white ground maize, 100% gluten-free and free of preservatives, artificial colours or flavours. It has its origins hundreds of years ago, cooked by the indigenous tribes across the areas that are now Venezuela and Colombia. This South American delight can be eaten for breakfast, lunch or dinner.  BUEN PROVECHO!

We grill our AREPAS on the spot and we  fill them with fresh & healthy ingredients.
