This place is just a piece out beloved country in Barcelona. Absolutely everything tastes and feels like in Venezuela. The arepas, cachapas, juices, tequenos! Love this place.

The menu offered 'Arapas'. I had no idea what these are, so I went for the option called Pabellon de Aguacate. Arapas are tortillas from Venezuela. This one had avocado, black beans, fried plantain and cheese, was cooked while I waited, was excellent - and cheap! I didn't want a take-away. However, although there are several tables, there are no... More

This is a great place to grab a quick bite - they have no seats so it's standing room only or when the weather is good take it out and go relax in the park and enjoy your food. The arepas are all super tasty - I've tried a lot of them, and the juices are great! A flavour-gasm!

The food is tasty and for a Venezuelan in Barcelona this place is just perfect. If you want to try Venezuelan food give it a go here and you won't be disappointed. Just bear in mind that there are no chairs and depending on the day you have to wait (sometimes too long) to get what you ordered.

If you already know arepas and cachapas, you'll love it. If you're not familiar with Venezuelan food you should give it a chance. Customers are mainly Venezuelans, but other nationalities are permitted as well. Decoration is a collection of Venezuelan memorabilia. Two things are not good for me. First, you have nowhere to sit, just like you were having lunch... More

First time trying Venezuelan food and I'm already planning our next visit to this restaurant. Food is great. There is only a small detail: there are no chairs, but other than that everything was great!

Tasty is nice, the problem is that they don't put too much meat or whatever into the bread. Short portions. They raised the prices in the last month without change the rest. Fame's price.

We had Arepas and Cachapas. They are delicious Venezuelan "crepes" with different fillings. Try them with "frijoles" (black beans). They are very tasty. We found them a bit small, so we had to have 2 each.

La Taguara Areperia, es el lugar de las arepas, cachapas y zumos naturales. Ademas puedes disfrutar picando de los tipicos acompanantes venezolanos, aquellos que encuentras en cualquier playa, en cualquier kiosco, en cualquier "taguara" como son los ricos tequenos, los patacones a la "Cuyagua", la crujiente yuca frita, uhm!. Igualmente la Taguara Areperia te puede dar entre esta variedad de sabores el toque dulce y alli es donde encontramos las conservitas de coco, los golfeados, y los pastelitos de guayaba con queso crema.

Y como nuestro plato principal es la Arepa, que es una torta de harina de maiz precocida de forma circular que se prepara asada, te la presentamos tanto sola, es decir, que la puedes comer como un pan y que en nuestro menu es "La Viuda", hasta con el relleno mas tipico como lo es la de "Pabellon", con frijoles negros, queso, carne mechada y platano macho. Y asi contamos con 16 estilos mas de arepa, si! 16 Mezclas de sabores entre quesos venezolanos, pollo, aguacate, vegetales y mas. Siempre conservando el toque natural y sano que puede brindar la arepa al ser de harina de maiz, muy importante para nuestros consumidores al no tener gluten.

Y si no tienes hambre y te quieres refrescar con un zumo natural solo te podemos decir que tenemos de: guayaba, guanabana, mora, maracuya, tamarindo, lulo, sandia-pina, papelon con limon, fresa y mango.

Neighbourhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
