  • I know it's not in the lg or arena ares but there's a gorgeous arepas bar in Alcala right on the plaza on the right hand side when going down the hill,can't remember the name but it sits on the far right hand side.

  • Thanks, that's handy to know, I often walk along the coast from Playe de la Arena to San Juan, and the place in Alcala will be an ideal place for a break.

  • The arepa is a Venezuelan and Colombian corn-based dish foodstuff, widely spread to other Latin American countries, but can be available worldwide. It is composed of a flat (the flatness varies) meal cake of maize flour, split in half and filled with cheese, deli meats, and a great variety of fillings. It may be eaten closed like a sandwich, or dressed with toppings and eaten open-faced. Although similar to a sandwich in its presentation, it can also be eaten as a side dish, in lieu of bread Hope this helps :)

  •  They look  like a small burger bun made of maize flour and fried. My favourite filling is the shredded chilli beef. 2 or 3 Arepas  with different fillings and a nice cold Dorada, great. Well worth a try as being something a bit different. I'm surprised there aren't more places doing them given Tenerife's links to Latin America.
