Barcelona DESTINATIONS Spain Where I eat and chill

Food discovery: arepas

Today I wanted to talk about a food discovery that I made here in Barcelona, the arepas.

If you don’t know what it is, arepas come from Venezuela and Colombia, you can find it in Barcelona because of the big South-American community living here. I’ve never heard about arepas before, they are like fried corn bread, crispy and with a soft heart.

They are generally filled as sandwiches, one the of most famous recipe is the Reina Pepiada, an avocado-chicken mix.

I discovered the arepas at one of my favorite place for brunch here, Tropico. They do brunch with a latin-american twist, I tried their arepas with scrambled eggs and vegetables inside, really good.

Already fond of arepas, I had to find a different place to try more of them. I found a small authentic venezuelian restaurant, El Rincon de la Abuela Venezolana, it’s close by the Sagrada Familia.

I tried their Reina Pepiada arepas, the one with chicken and avocado and I loved it. There’s a lot of different recipes and I can’t wait to try more!
