The pulled pork in this arepa was tender and juicy.

We liked the balance of flavors in this offering, and we could definitely see ourselves getting it again.

The beef picadillo was amazing. We aren’t sure which is better, this or the carnitas.

The picadillo is savory and gets a lot of flavor from the peppers and onions mixed in.

Queso Blanco Arepa – $8.29

Cornmeal cake filled with shredded mozzarella cheese, mayo ketchup, and cilantro

The queso arepa claims to have mayo ketchup and cilantro, but both of those items seemed to be totally missing. The only thing we could taste was the mozzarella cheese. Kids and picky eaters will probably enjoy this option, but we wish there was something else going on to liven up the pocket.

Location of the Arepas Food Truck at Halloween Horror Nights 30

The Arepas food truck is located in San Francisco near Richter’s Burger Co., as indicated by the orange star on the map below.
