Pica Pica Maize Kitchen

610 1st St.
Napa, CA, United States
TEL: (707) 226-6529

Vibrant accents of red, orange, and green call attention to this quick-service Venezuelan eatery at Oxbow Public Market. Modeled after a traditional arepera, or 24/7 food joint, Pica Pica features an entirely wheat- and gluten-free menu comprised of various corn dishes. Options include arepas (grilled white corn flour cakes), cachapas (sweet yellow corn pancakes), and maize-wiches (sweet corn bread), all filled with a variety of meats and served with yuca fries. Pabellón, a signature preparation, includes shredded beef, sweet plantains, black beans, and queso fresco. In addition to beer and wine, homemade sangria is available by the glass and pitcher.

Insider Tip:

Monday through Thursday, arrive early for dinner (between 3 and 5 p.m.) and head across the way to Pica Pica Bar for happy hour specials on drinks and Latin-style tapas.
