100 Favorite Dishes, No. 98: Arepas at Zaguan Latin Cafe

Zaguan Arepas.jpg
To prepare for this fall's Best of Dallas® 2012 issue, we're counting down (in no particular order) our 100 Favorite Dishes. If there's a dish you think we should try, leave it in the comments, or email me.

Not every sandwich has to be a full-service gut bomb. Sometimes you just want a little something, tucked into a little something else, to get you through the day without weighing you down. Zaguan's arepas fit the bill, while also offering something a hell of a lot more interesting than two slices of Wonderbread.

Stuffed with your choice of beef and cheese, chicken and cheese, mushrooms and cheese or my personal favorite, reina pepiada (pulled chicken and avocado), the little baby sandwiches pack in big flavor. And if a gut bomb is what you're going for? Just order two.

Hungry for more? Check back every morning for another dish, and download our Best Of App for Android and iPhone for more picks on the go.

what about the cachapa?  vastly superior to the arepa, IMO.


This is very delicious indeed although I don't like the name of the sandwich. Always sounds like "I rape a sandwich" to me.

 If I could count the times I've made that same joke... I'd be a good counter.
