Arepa & Salsa Restaurant Review

: Arepas are cornmeal-flour patties slit like pita bread then 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 at this downtown spot are corn-based. “UFOs,” or mini corn donuts filled with cheese, are a local hit. Vegetarians may go for the meat-free versions of the arepa, such as the black bean, plantain and avocado combo. Tostones (fried plantains) are served sandwich-style packing the likes of shredded beef, pork, chicken or black beans. Arepa & Salsa doesn’t serve wine, but the restaurant offers a few domestic beers.
