Arepa & Salsa Restaurant Review

: Arepa & Salsa’s dinner menu is comprised of one page, but the meal is far from short on flavor. Cornmeal-flour patties slit like pita bread are stuffed with any combination of shredded beef or chicken salad, black beans, fried plantains and avocado and served alongside crispy homemade potato chips. Even the appetizers are corn-based. The “UFOs,” or mini corn donuts stuffed with cheese, are a local hit. Vegetarians may go for the meat-free versions of the arepa sandwich, such as the black bean, plantain and avocado combo. Arepa & Salsa doesn’t serve alcohol or dessert.
