    Since 1990, Maria Cano has sold highly satisfying cheese-filled arepas at her Arepa Lady cart on Roosevelt Ave. in Jackson Heights. She’s opening a restaurant nearby soon, which is great news.

    “Located under the L on Roosevelt Avenue, Maria Piedad Cano makes sublime legendary Colombian-style arepas. Flat cornmeal cakes stuffed or topped with meat or cheese and fried to perfect goodness.”

    Heavenly griddled arepas topped with cheese from an icon of New York's street food world. Check her Twitter for updates on when she'll be out, usually after dark during warmer months.
