The Super Luxury Bowl from Arepittas

The Best Thing We Ate This Week

Thank God I skipped breakfast before hitting up Arepittas ( for lunch this week because their Super Luxury Bowl with grilled shrimp is pretty much the equivalent of three meals in one. A forkful of Venezuelan scrambled eggs with added veggies and spices, mixed with black beans and shrimp, then topped with a spicy cilantro sauce, was hearty and delicious. Coleslaw on the side made for a nice balance to the spice, with tasty tajadas (sweet plantains) for dessert. Plus, an arepitta on top. Don’t miss this tiny spot tucked into a Downtown alley; open 11 a.m.-8 p.m., Monday-Saturday, at 412-428 Cherry Way. — Lisa Cunningham, editor in chief
