Arepa & Salsa Restaurant Review

: A specialty of Venezuela and Columbia, the arepa is made from cornmeal-flour patties slit like pita bread and stuffed with any combination of shredded beef or chicken salad, black beans, fried plantains and avocado. While that traditional sandwich is the most popular item at Arepa & Salsa, an authentic Venezuelan restaurant, the tostones (fried plantains) come in a close second. Fried plantains are filled with beef, chicken or roasted pork and served with salsa and cabbage salad. Vegetarians may order both the arepa and tostones with black beans and eggplant. Arepa & Salsa doesn’t serve alcohol or dessert.
