Arepas Cafe's menu offers five varieties of pabellon (shredded meat with rice, black beans, and fried sweet plantains), along with more than 15 meat and veggie stuffings for its namesake arepa, corn-based flatbread that's heartier than a tortilla. Preheat your appetite with mini cachapas, sweet-corn pancakes served with melted cheese ($8.94). Arepas options include roast pork-, avocado-, and white-cheese-stuffed mami arepa ($6.75), Riccardo’s truffle-buttered tuna arepa ($6.25), and the pabellon arepa with chicken salad ($6.75). Venezuela's national dish, the pabellon criollo ($11), is a classic combination of shredded beef, black beans and rice, and fried sweet plantains topped with aged white cheese. Wash down stray black beans and Lego helmets with a gulp of Toddy chocolate shake, non-alcoholic Malta Polar, red or white wine, or beer.
