Oh Corn! Areas and More:  For those still new to the arepa, these “English Muffins” shaped white corn buns are big enough to hold in two hands and can be eaten plain or with butter. They are opened up like a pocket and stuffed with endless fillings, such as shredded beef, black beans, cheese, avocado and chicken, or anything  that comes to your mind.
The arepa is pleasure and duty on the menu of every one that discover it. An arepa not only bring the Venezuelan community together in an almost religious adoration of a culinary tradition, but it is also a warm invitation to the ever growing diverse  community in the Capital Region to try one of the most versatile food in the world.
