Fried Colombian arepas de huevo?
« on: June 14, 2018, 02:57:17 PM »
Does anyone know where in JH I could find these fried types of arepas with egg inside? (Similar to these: https://www.mycolombianrecipes.com/arepa-filled-with-egg-arepa-de-huevo).

I know arepas, like the kind at Arepa Lady, are common in the neighborhood, but I have not found a place yet that serves these crispy fried bundles of salty joy. I first tried them around Cartagena and the northern coast of Colombia — maybe that’s why they’re hard to find? Most establishments here seem to hail from Medellin or Bogota.

Or maybe I just haven’t searched hard enough?

Any tips or suggestions on where to look are appreciated.  :)

i know i had one at Arepas Burger (which now seems to be called Burger Factory) on Northern at 81st. not sure if the name change indicates an ownership change or menu change, but this one was really good.

I have not seen this particular assembly but I have seen a few new arepa places lately, such as:
Arepas To Go https://www.yelp.com/biz/arepas-to-go-jackson-heights
Arepaza https://www.yelp.com/biz/el-arepazo-queens-2?osq=arepas


The ones in your picture look baked-in, not filled. so hmmmmmm... Would be from a bakery, not a restaurant most likely. Would help if we knew the demographics as you say of the people here and this particular dish.
