It probably goes without saying, but at Arepa Lady, you should be eating arepas. There are a few different kinds, like the grilled and stuffed arepas rellena and the thinner, folded arepas de choclo. Both of those are solid choices, but be sure to get at least one arepa de queso. These are thick, fluffy, and filled with melted mozzarella (plus a meat of your choice) - and if you don’t order one, you might lie awake at night and wonder how you could have done things differently.
