If you miss the freedom of outdoor arepa dining since Viva Las Arepas moved indoors, then this is the food truck for you. Rika serves its own Venezuelan cornmeal patties stuffed with chicken, pork or beef. Arepas may be unfamiliar to you, but their fillings are not; the reina pepiada is a riff on chicken salad, while the jamon y queso is a play on the ham and cheese sandwich.

Rika’s best arepa may be its most exotic. When you visit, hope they’re serving the pabellón, a combination of black beans, shredded beef, cheese and plantains, a hint of sweetness that provides culinary insight into the tastes of Venezuela. Wash it down with parchita [passion fruit] and mora [blackberry] juices to round out the experience. Look for Rika at farmer’s markets across the Valley, including Friday’s Downtown 3rd Farmers Market. –JB
