Best Arepas in SF or on Peninsula?

Want to try some authentic arepas (not too reengineered for modern times) but don't know where to try.. Prefer somewhere I can take-out and not have to sit down to order them.

  1. Coupa Cafe in Palo Alto has arepas. I have no idea if they are authentic or not, but they taste good.

    1. I have had arepas at both Coupa and Pica Pica in Napa (there is one in the city) and honestly it seems like it really depends on the day. I have had meh ones at both and great ones at both.

      1. I can't speak to authenticity, but try Mr. Pollo. The chef, Manny, is from Venezuala, and I've seen people pop in and get arepas for take out.
