An arepa is the daily bread of Venezuela handed down generations from the Timoto-Cuicas (a local tribe). Made of white cornmeal, water and salt, the dough is formed into a patty, grilled, baked, split open and stuffed with a variety of ingredients like a sandwich. Arepa styles in Venezuela vary by region. They may be fried, baked or grilled and eaten for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Quiero Arepas® offers grilled arepas which are served for lunch, dinner, and occasionally for breakfast!
Although arepas can be found in Colombia, Panama, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic and the Canary Islands, Quiero Arepas® makes traditional Venezuelan style arepas with varied influences. Guasacaca sauce is one of the most popular choices to season your arepa and comes standard on many of Quiero Arepas® menu items.
We hope you’ll come and experience Denver street food at it’s finest and try an arepa for yourself at Quiero Arepas®!
