Arepa & Salsa Restaurant Review

: A specialty of Venezuela and Columbia, the arepa is made from cornmeal-flour patties slit like pita bread and filled with any combination of shredded beef or chicken salad, black beans, fried plantains and avocado. While the traditional sandwich is the most popular item at Arepa & Salsa, an authentic Venezuelan restaurant, the tostones (fried plantains) come in a close second. Beef, chicken or roasted pork are stuffed between two layers of fried plantain, so basically the plantain is the “bread” of the sandwich. Vegetarians may order both the arepa and tostones with black beans and eggplant. Arepa & Salsa serves neither alcohol nor dessert.
