Pica Pica Maize Kitchen


610 1st St.,
United States,

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.
