It seems simple: combine a few basic ingredients into a patty, cook it up, and top it with whatever you have on hand. But there’s something magical about these Venezuelan corn cakes that makes arepas a breakfast, lunch, or dinner treat around the globe.

Saman Arepas: Tostones

Born in 1977 in a small shop in Venezuela, the best arepas in the world can be found here in Florida at Saman Arepas Bistro. With two locations – Hunters Creek and Doral – along with two food trucks, we’re not only a favorite among Venezuelans, but for anyone who’s had a taste of these traditional specialties.
