Sorry for the double post!!!!!!!
Thanks Trapper, I figured as much. I've lived here for 2 months now, but haven't dined everywhere, yet!
I saw that too! they looked wonderfull. Well...you just need to get out the griddle. Get the ingredients and take a try yourself!!
These are very similar to the Mexican Sope. They can be found sometimes at the restaurants in Cabo where the locals eat. It is not a common menu item at the tourist restaurants, because they are considered sort of like local "soul food." Here in Cabo the maize bread is on the bottom with the filling on top, usually fried beans. They also have them fresh made every Sunday morning at the Cabo del Sol Golf Clubhouse buffet. Oh, Las Guacamayas has them too.
Arepas are often very much like empanadas here (or maybe a cross between empanadas and tamales) with the bread stuffed with meat and cheese or other things and fried up. At least, that's how the ex used to make them. I'm not a big Colombian food fan, usually very dull and boring, but arepas are the highlight. You have to have them with the aji sauce - suite101.com/blog/…colombian_aji_recipe - which really gives them an acidy bite. Kinda like blended pico de gallo with several interesting twists. Like empanadas and tamales, they are labor intensive to make.
