Arepas at Mekato’s Colombian Bakery


When you walk into Mekato’s Colombian Bakery, you might think they only sell sweets; between all of the dulce de leche-stuffed alfajores, cookies and pastries, you wouldn’t be too far off. But take a look to your immediate right, and you’ll see a small heated box, containing sausages, fried empanadas and arepas. These thin, narrow, griddled corn cakes are jammed with corny, salty flavor, and if you like, you can also get them topped with a thin layer of cheese. Grab a tropical fruit drink from behind the counter, sit at one of the small tables in the front window, and think how lucky you are to live in a city this delicious and diverse.
