Arepas & Cachapas







Fast Food










Arepas are a popular favorite of Venezuelans. They are a heavy, partially sliced corn meal bun stuffed with cheese, meat, fish, or any of more than 20 different stuffing's that many areperas feature. Low cost, good, and filling.

Cafés are trendy, upscale restaurants, usually showing greater attention to detail, and service. Often with exclusive menu items, offered in a unique setting. 

Fast Food Restaurants.  There are many, and each feature basic menu´s with popular foods, served quickly at moderate prices.  Mérida also has about a hundred small lunch stands on wheels, which are set-up for night time only openings.  We do not offer Home Pages to these restaurants for two reasons: 1. We think that they have an unfair advantage over our established restaurant clients, and: 2. They move about frequently, requiring constant address changes.
