Meet our favorite Arepa Lady. She is no ordinary Arepa Lady as she makes the fluffiest and most heavenly ones on Roosevelt Ave. (Trust us, we tried others and every one else we had was a far, far second.) She is elusive as she only sells them on Friday and Saturday nights, but have no fear - SHE’S ON TWITTER! Want some? Just follow @Arepalady
She’s got some reviews on Yelp too! Social Media Hotness.
Find her at the corner of 79th Street and Roosevelt Avenue. Check her twitter first. WE ALL DO.
PS. She’s has extended hours this weekend for the gay pride parade!
At Arepas Cafe, you get killer Venezuelan food and some of the best service around. The house specialty is the arepa, a crunchy grilled corn pancake butterflied and loaded with every array of filling imaginable (pictured: tuna, pico de gallo, avocado, & truffle butter). And with numerous specials and a happy hour like this, how can you go wrong? Arepas Cafe, 33-07 36th Ave., Astoria, NY; (718) 937-3835
Patacon Pisao, the famous Venezuelan food truck from Washington Heights, now has a storefront in Elmhurst. The cachapas sandwich above uses sweet corn cakes instead of bread. It’s stuffed with lettuce, tomatoes, ketchup, pernil (roast pork), queso frito (fried cheese), and Patacon Pisao’s special sauce. Other Venezuelan snacks available are arepas, patacones, and tachuchos.
