Empanadas, my 20-something daughter had a taste for empanadas...and Arepa Mia showed up in her Internet search.
Arepa Mia didn't disappoint! We had to stand in line to order on a busy weekday at noon, but we expected that. Since we'd never been we decided to order 3 different things. We ordered some black bean & plantain empanadas, a chicken arepa with avocado & a black bean chachara... They were all yummy & satisfying. We 're gluten-free, so finding any place to eat that's all gluten free can be a challenge, but this one is. We shared a long picnic table with some other women there for lunch. There are 2-long picnic type tables each capable of seating about 10 people and a few bar height seats, so seating and ambiance are minimal, but this is one of many food options in Atlanta's Municipal Market...also referred to as Sweet Auburns Curb Market.
Arepa Mia isn't open for dinner. Parking is available in a parking lot behind the Market or on the street...make sure you have cash or change for that, although our parking meter would also take credit cards. Arepa Mia only takes MasterCard or Visa.
In summation, if you've never been to this market, make it a two-fer & dine at Arepa Mia! It's not Chipotle...because it's not a chain but it is a dining adventure for the sights and tastes. We thoroughly enjoyed it & we'll be back for lunch again!
