Welcome to Arepa & Co, the smiling face of Venezuelan cuisine in central London. Most people might not know much about Venezuelan cuisine, or indeed about this beautiful and largely misunderstood country in South America. But, aside from a complicated political history (and, sadly, much political upheaval in recent years), Venezuela is known for its friendliness, vibrancy and delicious cuisine. Arepa & Co aims to bring this to the streets of Haggerston in their thrillingly chic restaurant, complete with atmospheric terrace neighbouring the canals. You can even take your meal in one of their canal-facing hammocks!
Traditional ingredients such as cornbread, maize, black beans, fried plantain, avocado, cassava, shredded beef, pork loin and roasted vegetables are the core of Venezuelan cuisine. You will find a selection of sumptuous small plates, such as the pastelitos; beef turnovers with apple salsa verde. Grab a few and a couple of drinks between two and you’re in for a delicious and fun light meal. Hungrier patrons can choose between mains of rice bowls with a choice of beef, chicken or vegan options, or cachapas, a kind of corn pancake with your choice of beef, pork, chicken or beans, all beautifully marinated to traditional age-old recipes. However, the reason you come to Arepa & Co, is not just the ‘co’. You’ll need to try an Arepa; a round crusty sandwich filled with either beef and cheese, chicken and avocado (with crispy chicken skin), pork shoulder, beans and avocado or sweet potato and charred apple sauce.
You really don’t want to miss out on your chance to try a few Venezuelan delicacies at this well-loved and highly coveted eatery in central London.
