Miss Arepa is a 100% gluten-free Venezuelan restaurant founded by Wilson Vera Contreras and Gabrielle Vasile. The establishment aims to share the vibrant flavors and cultural heritage of Venezuelan cuisine with the people of Maui.

The restaurant's menu features the arepa, a beloved Venezuelan staple that serves as the heart of their offerings. Arepas are corn cakes that can be filled with a variety of savory ingredients, from shredded chicken and avocado to black beans and cheese. In addition to traditional arepas, Miss Arepa also offers innovative takes on this classic dish, as well as other Venezuelan specialties like cachapas (sweet corn pancakes) and empanadas.

Beyond the arepa, the menu at Miss Arepa is filled with tasty options for every palate, from meat lovers to plant-based eaters. The Pabellon bowls, featuring a choice of protein toppings like shredded beef, pork, or Kalua jackfruit, are particularly noteworthy, served over rice, black beans, plantains, and queso fresco. Sides such as tostones (fried plantains) and yuca fries complement the main dishes, while the Venezuelan quesillo dessert is a customer favorite.

The 100% gluten-free menu at Miss Arepa makes it a haven for those with gluten sensitivities or celiac disease, providing a safe and flavorful dining experience. The restaurant's bright, tropical decor and retro-inspired 1950s vibe create a welcoming atmosphere, with both indoor and outdoor seating available.

Whether you're craving a quick bite or a sit-down meal, this 100% gluten-free Venezuelan restaurant is sure to transport your taste buds to the vibrant flavors of South America.

I started this blog after I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease. After struggling to adjust to a mandatory gluten free diet, I wanted to create a resource for others trying to learn their way around this gluten filled world.
