It’s 5pm and every single person in your group has separately texted you asking about the dinner reservation. No, your friends haven’t suddenly become super time-conscious, they’re all just still full from lunch at Viva Las Arepas. This Venezuelan restaurant downtown specializes in arepas (all of which are under $8), but we’re big fans of getting a few empanadas as well. And before you leave, grab a guava and cheese pastelito to go because if you’re already pushing dinner back, you might as well get a snack.
