Believe it or not, we now have Colombian arepas and Venezuelan arepas in Antigua Guatemala within a block from each other.

The arepa shown here is from Rincocito Colombiano, located in the north end of 6a avenida norte. You can have arepas with all kinds fillings from chicken to beef, from pork to cheese; there’s no limit in what you can put inside. Once again, the delicious arepa pictured here is a mixta, mixed.

What’s an arepa, I hear you asking? Read on.

Arepa is a type of food made of ground maize dough, originating from the northern region of South America in pre-Columbian times, and is notable in the cuisines of Colombia and Venezuela. It is eaten daily in those countries and can be served with accompaniments such as cheese, cuajada, various meats, chicken, avocado, and diablito. Source: Wikipedia
