La Taguara – Arepas from Venezuela

I’m the worst. Before I came to Barcelona I didn’t even know what an arepa was. (If you are reading this and don’t know either, thank you for making me feel better… but you’re missing out!) Although not a Spanish concept, the presence of South American culture can really be felt here, and it’s a very welcome addition if they’re going to introduce me to these delights. La Taguara is a Venezuelan arepería that is perfect for a quick portable snack and what feels like a trip to Venezuela itself.

An arepa itself is a kind of floury cooked bread, but the choice for you is what to put in it – luckily the list of options here will give you some ideas. It’s also definitely worth checking out some of the exotic ingredients that can’t always be found in other places in Barcelona, plus their Venezuelan drinks, desserts, and general memorabilia around the walls.

Ideal combination: Sunday, a cold beer, the nearby Ciutadella Park and an Arepa from La Taguara. You can’t beat it!
