Native to Venezuela and Colombia, the arepa is a corn pone split in half and then stuffed with goodness, resulting in a stomach-expanding cornmeal sandwich. At this small Venezuelan strip mall cafe, they have every variety, each less than $5: There's the basic cheese-and-butter filling with traditional Venezuelan queso de año — a salty cheese that's white and crumbly. There's the arepa de perico, full of eggs scrambled with peppers and tomatoes. The reina pepeada has a filling of chicken salad mixed with potatoes, carrots, and avocado. And the best is the arepa de carne mechada, where the corn cake is stuffed with a juicy beef that's been stewed with tomatoes and onions — not unlike ropa vieja. All are served greasy and hot with a plastic bottle of garlic mayonnaise to squirt on top.

dear giancarlo .. I DONT KNOW where in venezuela you are going to find an arepa with melted cheese.. Thats a cliche from you jajaja.. colombian arepas (chochlo arepas) are the ones that have melted cheese but no venezuelan.. Thats the way every arepa maker in venezuela serve it.. I guess is hard to melt the cheese for every arepa in a place with 100 people waiting form them.. So yes the filling for the arepas is cold my friend, you can get it hot in your home maybe.

I make my own arepas myself. I use my underarm as a press. The cheese melts right away. Cheers!

The arepas I ate today were the best i have eaten, I have never tasted something that good in my life. besides that they dont heat up the food like in other places they make it at the time, and what really facinates me is that they have a menu with healthy things too like different types of soups and they have natural juices and a viarety of different meats iam defenietly going every week.

Eh...(shrugs shoulders)...the arepas I ate today were ok at best. I really wish they could have melted the cheese in mine instead of just stuffing it at the end, right before serving it to me. The cheese was still cold and falling all over the place. I think I've had better arepas at the youth fair. Can anyone help me find some really good arepas in Miami? Cause this one didnt cut it for me.
