MIDLAND, Texas (ABC Big 2) Typical food for the big game consists of pizza, wings, chips, and other delicious classics that have become a staple in American households. This year, for a game that will look and feel a lot different than any other year, why not change up the traditional food for a fresh taste of…..Venezuelan?!
At Café Unique off Midkiff Street in Midland, the different flavors of Venezuela are highlighted through various foods, but the most popular item is the arepa.
By definition, an arepa is a flat, round patty of ground kernels that have been baked or fried. At Café Unique, the arepas are cut open and filled with some of the most succulent meats you can find in West Texas.
“You open it, you put everything you want on it,” says Café Unique owner Gabriel Alvarado.
There are 17 different arepas listed on the menu. Some examples:
De Pabellon (shredded beef, black beans, fried sweet plantains and guayanes cheese).
La Surena (grilled chicken and chorizo with sliced avocados and spicy chimi-churri).
