Let's Go To Caracas Arepa Bar!

Have you ever tried an arepa?  Do you even know what one is?  Well, it's a gluten free bread that is very popular in both Columbia and Venezuela!  Typically, it is made out of ground corn, water, and salt.

If you are in the New York area then you are in luck because Caracas Arepa Bar has a location in NYC's East Village and in Brooklyn where they serve delicious gluten free arepas!

The selection of arepas that they have to choose from is rather extensive.  I tried the De Pollo (photographed above).  This arepa is filled with a grilled chicken breast with caramelized onions and cheddar cheese.  It was amazing!

Just make sure to not get the arepas that contain fried items or the plantain chips as they are fried in oil that is also used to fry wheat products!

Caracas Arepa Bar is open everyday from 12 noon to 11 pm.  On the weekends, there is usually a wait.  However, you can always choose to order takeout/delivery instead of waiting for a seat.

For more information, please visit or visit them at:

93 1/2 East 7th Street
New York, NY 10009


291 Grand Street
Brooklyn, NY 11211
