Do you raise your hand if you enjoy having breakfast for dinner? Okay everyone. Just as we predicted. There is no reason why tasty things like bagels and eggs should be banned from morning meals. If it were up to us, our favorite morning meals would be available at any time of the day. Fortunately, with a little help from our friends at Arepitas Bar, we made it.
The menu of this Latin American eatery in Time Out Market Miami scores with all the dishes we look for in a Colombian restaurant and more. There are crispy empanadas, pan de bono, and the newly invented bowl-shaped Bandeja Paisa (which we use on most hangover days). But Brooklyn is what stole our hearts. Now available with two grilled arepas (you can eat them with a fork and knife or sandwich style), the arepa is a reinterpretation of a classic salmon bagel. It consists of whipped cream cheese, smoked salmon, capers and lots of fresh, aromatic dill.
The arepa is perfect for lunch or dinner. It’s the dish we turn to when we’ve skipped breakfast but crave it later in the day. For the delicatessen purists, we’re the first to tell you that a chewy bagel is no match for the crispy exterior and tender interior of an arepa. It really is the perfect container for every topping. There is no challenge for us.
