Every now and then, your culinary standbys just won’t cut it. You’ve had your fill of boring burgers and pedestrian pizza. You’ve got a taste for something a little more exciting – delicious dishes representing the richness of the Latin culture, for example. If that sounds good to you, then you might want to add Arepitas to your list of must-try restaurants in the Killeen area.
What’s on the Menu?
Fresh, authentic Venezuelan dishes are the star of the Arepitas menu, which is varied enough to give you a little taste of their origins. The restaurant was the cumulative effort of two Venezuelans who wanted to bring the flavors of home to Texas. Everything on the menu is made with love, from scratch, and using the best possible ingredients, ensuring that your first meal at Arepitas won’t be your last.
Start with the tostones, an appetizer of green plantain chips, cabbage, cheese, avocado, and house-made sauce, or enjoy a “Crazy Craving” like Cachapas (sweet corn pancakes) or empanadas with beef, chicken, or cheese. Then get to the house specialty: arepas. These corn cake pockets are stuffed with a tantalizing blend of ingredients including beef, chicken, veggies, plantains, cheese, avocado, beans, and cabbage. The ones at Arepitas boast intriguing names like The Hairy (shredded beef), and Pimped Out Queen (chicken avocado salad). There’s even one called The Texan, which puts a local spin on the South American staple.
A Taste of Venezuela
“If you know Venezuelan food then I promise you this is the real deal,” writes one reviewer. “The owners are so friendly and take pride in what they do. The food is prepared fresh to order.”
If you’re ready to sample the flavors of Venezuela and fall in love with the authentic dishes and exceptional service at Arepitas, head in for lunch, dinner, or take-out. The restaurant is located at 360 West Central Texas Expressway, Suite 205 in Harker Heights, TX.
