It’s safe to say Miami has mastered the arepa.
Crispy, crunchy, and grilled to perfection, you can stuff it as you please and prepare to chow down. Whether handheld or utensils required, Yelp has five spots for Miami.com fans that do the arepa right.
“Doggi’s, I love you. I would want one of their arepas as a part of my last meal on earth. The arepa always arrives fresh, crispy with delicious fillings, another one to try is gouda and egg. I love their hot sauce, parsley sauce, and garlic sauce.” Yelper Puja B.
“Good Lord, what a delicious arepa I just had! Full of roasted beef, shredded white cheese, pico de gallo, and the sauce of the house. Super good. Super big. We will definitely come back.” Yelper Tatiana R.
“Even though service could be a little bit faster, the waiting is totally worth it when you get those amazing and huge arepas. Everything is huge and super tasty, the arepa with lomito is a must! The best chicha and reina pepiada ever.” Yelper Eugenia S.
“Arepitas Duo: Two arepas with avocado mousse, queso guayanes, chile ancho sauce, garlic aioli with braised chicken, braised skirt steak, salt cod, or chorizo. The skirt steak is incredibly tender, and the spicing is absolute perfection.” Yelper Stephanie L.
“The reina pepiada I had twice is pulled chicken mixed in an avocado sauce and served on a very fresh arepa warm enough to melt the cheese… The arepa is hot and soft with a slight crunch to contrast with the melted cheese and creamy chicken, with no sloppy mess.” Yelper Mark S.
