Review of Arepa Mia

Description: Located in Panajachel, founded by a Venezuelan family that arrives in Guatemala with only one goal in mind, have a better life. Nowadays, Arepas MIA is a local small business that offers typical Venezuelan food, therefore, our main dish are "Arepas". What is an Arepa ? Well, according to St. Google : "a corn pancake, sweetened or unsweetened, eaten in Venezuela and Colombia" (So gluten free). Co

I was SO excited to see an arepa place in Pana. I ate here several times and enjoyed everything! My favorite was a shredded beef one (can't remember the name), but the reina pepiada and vegan ones are also good. I wish I'd had more time to try them all! They have tons of varieties available. The sauces they serve with the arepas are yummy, too.

They are able to do takeaway, and will even do an order early in the morning if you order it the night before. We ordered 10 arepas to be picked up at 8am and they were ready at 8 on the dot, with napkins and to-go sauces provided, too!

Not sure if they accept credit card- I only paid cash.

HIGHLY recommended!

My friend and I went directly to this restaurant after seeing a Facebook advertisement. We were specifically interested in the arepa pabellón and we were not disappointed! The sandwich was absolutely wonderful — shredded meat, sauce, beans, and rice — the sweetness of the fried plantains inside really made a difference by complementing the smoky meat. The drink was something fizzy with brown sugar and delicious!

The restaurant manager, Aaron, not only knew everything there is to know about arepas, he answered all our questions about the extensive menu. Aaron was also the perfect host; available when we needed him but not overbearing as some hosts can be in Latin countries. The location is perfect and the restaurant was impeccably clean.

We will definitely be returning to Arepa Mia in Panajachel and can highly recommend them.

Friendly attentive service (which can be hard to come by around the Lake), very good food in good portions and inexpensive prices. You’re missing out if you don’t go here, at least twice.
