|Menu (as of late September 2011)|
I arrived at the food pod around 11:45 a.m. on a Tuesday and saw virtually zero people at this pod. Seriously, all we needed was a few tumbleweeds to resemble a ghost town. Fortunately, that meant I would get my food much faster than if I went downtown.
I ordered their chicken arepa ($5): slowly cooked shredded chicken breast prepared with onion, garlic, sweet pepper, and paprika, all inside a corn cake. And yes, arepas are generally gluten free! Since there was no line when I got there, I got my order within a minute or so of ordering.

I would have liked the corn cake itself cooked on the flattop a bit more; get some more color on it to liven up the appearance. Next time, I'll try an arepa that has more than just meat inside it. In the meantime, I'd say this is a decent place to get your arepa fix. 6/10
