Your Arepa platter is never a let down! We enjoy your food and although it does take quite some time we have learned to bring some activities for our children and to arrive a little early for dinner. :-) thanks for a super full belly and another delicious experience!

What You'll Get

Tasting a new kind of food is the best way to determine your culinary compatibility, since aromas can be misleading and it can get boring hearing food sizzle on about its high-school glory days. Make a date with edible destiny with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Venezuelan fare at My Arepa in Mesa.

My Arepa carefully encases a variety of fresh, delectably seasoned Venezuelan ingredients into cornbread encasements. Served either fried or baked, regular arepas arrive with fillings such as gouda ($4), shredded chicken ($3.50), or ham ($3.50) snuggled into piquant pockets. Specialty arepas pack bundled concoctions, including black beans and white cheese ($4.50), colombian chorizo with gouda ($5), or a combination of scrambled eggs, onions, green peppers, and tomatoes ($4.50) for flavorful expeditions into previously uncharted belly territory.

Other South American–style eats include fried yucca with avocado sauce ($5) and crispy tequeños—Venezuelan cheese sticks—(three for $3), ideal first-course finger-foods or last-course savory desserts. More traditional sandwich-seekers can find hot dogs ($3.50) and hamburgers ($6.50) slotted alongside the garlicky grilled steak pepito, a globe-crossing french baguette laden with steak and smothered in gouda and venezuelan pink sauce ($10).

Visitors can wash down these savory eats with refreshing liquids such as cinnamon-spiked chicha ($3), or they can distract sweet teeth with bites of flan to keep them from gossiping about the last lollipop the tongue licked.


AZCentral.com named My Arepa one of the Top 10 Latin-American Restaurants in Phoenix and also gave it a 4.5-star review in 2009. Ten Yelpers give it an average of 3.5 stars.

  • At My Arepa, empanadas are made from corn (not flour) and deep-fried so brown and brittle they practically shatter when you bite into them. Meanwhile, pastelitos are made with flour, which renders them more tender and pastry-like. – Nikki Buchanan, AZCentral.com
  • The owner Moises is a great guy. He and his wife Maria make some outstanding Venezuelan food. The arepas and empanadas are truly out of this world. – Hank M., Yelp, 7/8/10
