We go to Quiero Arepas whenever we find ourselves in the Highlands neighborhood, and we took visiting family there (every food allergy you can imagine), and 8 of us were able to happily enjoy the arepas!

The service was good, so was the food. Was it great/awesome? No. Why? They should NOT use mozzarella since there is nothing Venezuelan about that, I wanted queso blanco because mozzarella is not salty enough. It would be amazing if they sold tequeños with the...More

I had the "El Caribe" arepa twice (Smoked salmon, capers, avocado, cheese) and I must say: I love love love the freshness of the ingredients and the lightness of the "flat bread". These arepas are legit Venezuelan style, super delicious, natural, hand made and gluten...More

We make hand crafted Venezuelan Arepas. Made from corn meal, water and salt, the arepa is formed into a patty, grilled, baked, split open and stuffed with all natural and local ingredients. Our menu is 100% GLUTEN FREE & we are the 1st truck in the nation to be certified gluten free. The arepa is the daily bread of Venezuela. We are recreating our childhood memories and sharing the experience with our guests.
