Authentic Venezuelan arepas

Arepera offers the most authentic arepas outside of Caracas. I remember these dishes from when I lived there in the 70s and what we had to eat at Arepera brought back all the good memories. Excellent flavors and delicious and crispy (on the outside) arepas. Very good.

I had never had an Arepera before tonight, but now I know I should have them again! The corn based Venezuelan bread is very tasty and has a bonus of being gluten free. The plantain filling was sweeter than I expected so I probably would leave that out when ordering again. The guac sauce and hot sauce they give you... More

this is a small, very casual and inexpensive resto serving mostly arepas, a type of sandwich from a rich tasty flatbread popular in Venezuala and Columbia. They have a mix of fillings using meats, cheeses and veges. We were interested in vege or seafood, which may have limited our selection. They were out of shark, which makes up two of... More

Wonderful place for great pabellon and arepas in a convivial atmosphere, simple, clean, and efficient. You can speak French, Spanish, or English here. No alcohol, but worth the wait for great food. I went with my Venezuelan lover who assured me it was authentic.

As a French Colombian family we've been advised to eat the famous "arepas" of this restaurant. The choice is wide, including vegan arepas! You can drink excellent exotic juice (lulo's one is perfect), service is perfect (you may have to wait a little bit as this restaurant is well known), very friendly. Just close your eyes and you will travel... More

Staying in Le Plateau Mont-Royal

Neighborhood Profile
Le Plateau Mont-Royal
Go native in Plateau Mont-Royal, where bespoke shopping, hip eateries, and wacky paint jobs attract locals and transplants alike, making it one of the city's most diverse and distinctly authentic experiences. A creative hub, Montreal's artistic elite pack the cafes along Rue Saint-Denis, where young painters and fashion designers draw inspiration from the playful murals and stately Victorian homes that dot the Plateau's side streets. Not a major sightseeing destination, a visit to Plateau Mont-Royal allows you to enjoy a local perspective, soaking in indie films, latte art, contemporary galleries, and the city's best bagels. A center of polyglot culture, Québécois accents mingle with shades of Portuguese, Greek, and Hebrew in the area's iconic Mile End district, where restaurants straddle chic designer boutiques, serving up chorizo and caldo verde. Friendliest to those on foot, it's a jungle of colorful awnings and sidewalk umbrellas, pedestrian walks and luxury shopping.
