Food Glossary: Arepa

Arepa is a round (usually) fried cornmeal patty served plain as an accompaniment to breakfasts, or with cheese, meat, eggs or another topping or filling from a street food stall.  It is found in Columbia and Venezuela in South America.  I have only sampled it in Columbia, but it was really tasty and an easy, cheap snack to get any time of day on the streets.  It tastes similar to a pancake-like-bread and can be sweet or savoury.
