Pabellon Arepas: tortillas stuffed with shredded beef, black beans, sweet plantains and feta.
For refreshingly healthy and gluten-free stuffed tortillas, Newtown locals head to La Reina – Queen of Venezuelan Arepas on King Street. Once a market stall, La Reina has set up shop in a funky, hole-in-the-wall style restaurant, where dark charcoal walls and wood floors create a relaxed vibe, with splashes of orange adding vibrancy and warmth. Firm and crunchy on the outside, soft and steamy inside, arepas are typically served warm, filled with delicious savoury ingredients, such as slow cooked pulled pork and Venezuelan-style juicy shredded beef; along with a traditional favourite of chicken, avocado salad and lime aioli. Opt for a super food twist and choose a beetroot and kale arepa, while vegan and vegetarian options are also on offer with black beans, plantains, rice and salad.
