    Nice convenient spot, the arepas were just ok, a little bland. Nothing to write home about.

    I tried the empanadas, white arepa with beef and the sweet corn cachapa. Thoughts: white arepa mixed with sweet plantains, beef and black beans is an amazing combination, empanadas wouldnt get again.

    I'd like to try some other combinations, as the pabellon was good, but not super authentic or as flavorful as I'd hoped.

    I've never had an arepa before, but I will have to again! Pork(?) black bean purée and plantains in a sweet yellow shell.

    Arepas are really the type of thing I feel you have to be in the mood for. If you aren't craving sweet corn mush, then hit all the other places in the Mission.

    The Plato is awesome. But add Yuca frites to get the full savory experience. This was a very nice surprise.

    Loved the taro nachos and arepas. Great options for someone who can't eat gluten or dairy. Will definitely come again the next time I'm in San Fran. MASSIVE portions though.
