An arepa is a round flatbread made from corn, so it is 100% gluten free. This pocket of pleasure fits perfectly in your hands. Each one is handmade and griddled, resulting in a crispy outside and a spongey centre filled with a multitude of fresh flavors, like naturally raised meats and fresh veggies. Every arepa is then topped with our very own homemade salsas.
We started making arepas a year ago at “Streetfood Thursday” at Markthalle Neun in Berlin. With a few helping hands from some friends over the past year, Maria Maria Arepas has gone from serving our delicious flatbread pockets at only one market to 40 market events this month!
“After discovering a gluten intolerance and being frustrated with the lack of tasty gluten free options in Berlin, I decided to do something about it. I had discovered Arepas in my travels and I knew they were the answer because they are delicious, healthy and versatile. They allowed me as a chef to express my creativity by exploring latinamerican and caribbean flavors that I’m passionate about. ” – Maria Hugger, Founder of Maria Maria Arepas
