Arepas Cafe is a casual Venezuelan place where you can get an arepa stuffed with cheese, avocado, and whatever kind of meat you want. They also have pitchers of sangria, and you should probably order the appetizer sampler that comes with multiple types of fried things such as yuca and empanadas. This place is great for something relatively quick and affordable, and, if you stop by on a weekend, you can expect this place to be packed with people from the neighborhood.
