Arepera du Plateau - Venezuelan Cuisine
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.
During this difficult time, we are doing our best to keep our employees and customers safe. We are opening our dining room on Sept. 11, 2020, but customers will have to make a reservation, order directly on-line from their table, and will be able to stay a maximum of 1.5 hrs. We have reduced the number of seats by half, and we thoroughly clean the tables and seats after customers leave.
