Before I get into my adventures in the Northeast (hiiii I'm back!) I wanted to show off a little place I went to the night before I left. Say hi to Arepa Mia!
It's hard to describe an arepa, but basically it's a big grilled cornmeal patty, sliced in half and stuffed with...well, stuff. Whatever you fancy. The arepa itself is crispy on the outside but soft and chewy on the inside. Eat it like a burger.
Arepas are great because you can eat them at every meal and they go with just about anything. The ones at Arepa Mia really fill you up, too.
But if you're really hungry, you could always get some arepitas or tostones, too. The arepitas remind me of the dumplings I had for breakfast as a kid.
There's two Atlanta locations, and it's a really good place, so give it a try.
I'll be back with more food adventures later this week, but from New York!
