Arepera du Plateau was born in 2011 in a small restaurant on Duluth St. in the Plateau Mont-Royal area in Montreal. In 2018, we moved to a bigger place on Prince-Arthur, to better accommodate our customers.
In Venezuela, an arepera is a place that sells arepas. An arepa is a traditional Venezuelan/Colombian hand-made 100% corn, gluten-free bread. It's served like a sandwich, with various fillings which include beef, chicken, pork, fish, vegetables, or cheese.
Plato de pabellón
In Venezuela, we also have a traditional dish: plato de pabellón. It is a plate served with rice, black beans, plantains, and shredded beef in tomato sauce. In our restaurant, we serve "plato de pabellón", but the beef can be replaced with other fillings.
