Taste Venezuela's national dish at Arepa House

Taste Venezuela’s national dish at Arepa House

Paying tribute to the sun god as a divine food, the arepa is a flatbread or pocket made of grilled corn that is stuffed with various fillings and is prominent in Venezuelan cuisine. The ‘daily bread’ for Venezuelan families, arepa almost completely replaces the use of wheat bread.

Sharing traditional Venezuelan culture and cuisine through the national dish arepa, the team at Arepa House loves this amazing South American food. Arepa House’s arepa are handmade, slow cooked and best eaten with your hands. Choose to have your arepa stuffed with your choice of meat, beans, cheese or vegetables and served with a traditional mellow or spicy salsa.

The Arepa House house special is the pabellon, a great combination of shredded beef, black beans, plantain and grated yellow cheese. Try the reina pepiada, which is a delicious combination of shredded chicken, avocado and mayonnaise or maybe the vegetarian with haloumi cheese, avocado, plantain and tomato. Tempt your cultural palate with arepa from Arepa House at the Boundary Street Markets every Friday and Saturday.
