Got to visit for the first time Pica Pica Arepa Kitchen in San Francisco, CA and I was sure excited for this! They are 100% GLUTEN FREE and feature as their main dish a Venezulan Arepa which is a corn pocket that is filled with your choice of their signature family recipes. They offer vegan, vegetarian, and dairy free options as well. My date and I both came here in between lunch and dinner time. I ended up with a yellow corn arepa filled with the Blackened Beef Asado, sweet plantains, and queso fresco. Since I have a dairy allergy I got it with no queso fresco. My date ended up with a yellow corn arepa as well but filled with Grilled Chicken, black bean purée, tomato, queso fresco, and guasacaca. We both really enjoyed our arepas and they even came with a side of coleslaw which wasn’t even mayo based, which we really enjoyed. We also split a basket of yuca fries which is usually fried in the same fryer as dairy but they were able to fry them in the meat fryer for me to avoid cross contamination. Very accommodating!
They make their own spicy hot sauce that was really good and even mixed it into the ketchup available on the table giving it a nice kick. Would definitely come back here again and would classify it as one of my new favorite places.
