Besides the people (and the coffee … and the chocolate), the Colombian arepas are the best part of a visit to this country. An everyday staple, the arepa is breakfast, lunch and dinner – and, though the outer shell is corn-based, like the Mexico taco or Italian bread, there are endless variations on the recipe. The arepas at this local street-side restaurant were served with limes, hot sauce, a mayonnaise-based dressing.
