Best Arepa - 2012
You can get everything from traditional straw hats and baskets to Sparkies candies (Colombia's answer to Skittles) and two-liter bottles of Postobón soda at San Pocho, a one-stop shop and family restaurant serving Little Havana's Colombian community. The restaurant has developed a following beyond the neighborhood, thanks to flavorful renditions of Colombian comfort-food staples such as sancocho (meat-and-vegetable soup) and tasty arepas. Come early for the shredded chicken- and beef-filled varieties ($3 each) — they sell out every morning. But the basic arepa con queso ($2) — a curd of gooey white cheese melted over a single grilled corn pancake to create a perfect hybrid of crispiness — is the most addictive.
