VIVA LAS AREPAS - LAS VEGAS


An update on this post: Quality and gluten free seems to pay off. The owner has opened a restaurant and turned the kiosk into a Taco stand. Read more here:





From Wikipedia:

The arepa is a flat, round, unleavened patty made of cornmeal  which can be grilled, baked, or fried. The characteristics vary by color, flavor, size, thickness, garnishment, and the food with which it may be stuffed, depending on the region. Arepa is a native sort of bread made of ground corn, water, and salt which is fried into a pancake-like bread. It can be topped or filled with meat, eggs, tomatoes, salad, cheese, shrimp, or fish.

Just imagine a gluten free hot pocket, then you know what they are talking about.

This little Kiosk on Las Vegas Blvd. was the food find of this trip to Vegas. Located across the street from the Olympic Garden (which offers a totally different gluten free experience), the kiosk owner Felix prepares these excellent gluten free bites.

I tried quite a few different fillings, all very tasty,  #7 being the standout. I liked it so much that I dragged Victoria and Isabella into the 'hood, who after overcoming their trepidations about the surroundings really enjoyed the Arepas as much as I did.

So, when in Vegas you have to try this place. 1516 S. Las Vegas Blvd.
