The culinary traditions of Venezuela, Bolivia, and Chile dominate this down-to-earth restaurant next to a divey motel. The popular arepas are made with English-muffin-size rounds of cornmeal bread, fried or grilled and piled high with meats and veggies. We love the Reina stuffed with chicken salad and avocado and the Sifrina, topped with shredded cheese.
A light meal can be made of black-bean soup and a tropical salad with mango, papaya, and grilled chicken; bigger appetites call for sandwiches such as the Diputado, with sirloin and a fried egg.
Also good: “JP’s favorite” arepa, with sirloin, onion, and cilantro; corn salad; avocado salad with grilled chicken.
