Ha- very cool cake indeed.Yuca fries- we served both regular style and with garlic.  With a plethora of dipping sauces (hot, sweet, spicy)Tossing them with fresh garlic and cilantro.OMG! Are you dying of hunger yet?And what exactly is that?!  We get a lot of that, since our food is new to a lot of people.  But guests were very adventurous and dived right in- we had arepas, yuca fries, plantains and patacones (plantains with a topping).We had platters of bigger AREPAS (for the hungrier crowds) and as a side, CHILE NEGRO (black bean chile con carne) and Corn on the Cup (roasted corn, cheese, spicy).Goodness, made fresh, on the spot, with delicious fillings.  On the left, La Shuli (black beans tossed with tomatoes and spices, slightly spicy).  On the right, PELU’A (shredded beef and cheddar cheese).Plantains: one of our favorite ingredients at Pica Pica.  We serve them fried as sweet plantains, tostones (green plantains) or patacones (green plantains with a topping).  Above, left: patacones with Guasacaca (avocado) an tomatoes.  To the right, sweet plantains with cheese.The back of the house (power house!): Juan Ruiz, Juan Camacho and Samuel.Interested in a catering or a delivered meal for your party or meeting?  Email michal@picapicakitchen.com and we will work with you!Our boxed lunches are perfect for small deliveries.  Everyone will get their choice of their favorite meal from our menu (www.picapicakitchen.com)


ripley - Thanks for the pictures and the link!

and I can’t believe you guys were cooking arepas, my favorite food on the planet, and I didn’t get any! I asked someone to hook me up with vegetarian food while I was djing, and I did get some yucca fries, but I didn’t even KNOW there were Arepas! I couldn’t see what folks were eating, had I known I would have abandoned my dj post to get some. And plantains toooo. sigh…

I’ll have to come by and get some sometime.

Adriana Lopez - That is too bad, we had a few vegetarian and vegan options as fillings for the arepas. I guess that only leaves one option: you have to come see us in the Mission! Very happy you love AREPAS so much!
