pabellon arepa

Pabellon Arepas

Arepas are a traditional Latin food that is made of ground maize dough — think of them like stuffed cornmeal cakes. Arepas are crispy on the outside and fluffy on them, giving them a unique taste and texture. At Areppas, we make our arepas fresh and fill them with savory ingredients like short ribs, guacamole, chicken, and more.

If you are looking for gluten-free Latin food, our Pabellon Arepa is a must-try when visiting our Latin restaurant in New York City. It’s made with short ribs, black beans, Paisa cheese, and plantains. Choose whether you want yours soft or crunchy and add a little extra flavor and choose from our selection of sauces.

Cheese empanadas

Cheese Empanadas

Empanadas are savory pastries that are made with dough and can be filled with a variety of ingredients. At Areppas, we offer empanadas with cheese, chicken, beef, guava taqueño, and more! But if you’ve never tried our empanadas before, our cheese empanadas are a top-selling choice. When you order, make sure you choose from our selection of sauces and share your empanadas with friends — or savor them for yourself!

Brazilian acai bowl

Brazilian Acai Bowls

The acai bowl has its origins in Brazil, where the dish is known as a “bowl of health.” Our bowls are made with acai, a dark purple berry that grows on palm trees in the Amazon rainforest, that are high in antioxidants, fiber, and omega-fatty acids. This makes them a healthy (and vegan) choice to give you a boost in the morning or throughout the day.

Our Brazilian acai bowl draws on the origins of acai. Blending together organic Brazilian acai with banana, this bowl is topped with strawberries, bananas, pineapple, granola, shaved coconut, and chia seeds.



Churros were created by Spanish shepherds in the 16th century as a way to use up the leftover dough from their bread-making. At Areppas, we took this classic dessert and turned it into an indulgent treat that you won’t be able to resist, and are the perfect way to end any Latin meal!

Our Churros have the perfect blend of crispy outside and soft, doughy inside — this paired with our sweet dipping sauce is an incredible combination! Best yet, these don’t need any utensils so they’re easy to eat on the go or even in your car when you stop by one of our many locations in New York City.

perico arepa

Perico Arepas

Did you know that we have a breakfast menu that is available all day? Our Perico Arepa is part of our all-day breakfast menu. This dish takes a modern spin on the classic arepa — and is naturally gluten-free! Get scrambled eggs, pico de gallo, tomato, onion, lime, cilantro, and scallions wrapped in a traditional corn flour arepa. This is a great way to get that delicious arepa flavor packed with the protein you need to start your day off right.
