It’s not that hard to fulfill your sudden Arepas crave in Paris, just head to Montmartre, and stop by at Bululu Arepera. It’s no touristy spot and the restaurant — hidden in a tiny quiet street — is quite hard to find to be honest.
What’s an arepa again?
For those of you who are not in the know, they’re flatbread made with ground corn. This traditional Venezuelan sandwich is then stuffed with various fillings including black beans and marinated beef. All the arepas at Bululu are made to order and ingredients seemed super fresh. The two lunch menus are quite inexpensive (€11 for 1 traditional Venezuelan broth + 1 arepa, or 2 arepas).
We found that the flatbread was very crispy and more flavorful than the one we had at Caracas. The fillings were very generous. We had one arepa de Pabellon (with marinated beef) and one with arepa with avocado and black beans. Both were extremely flavorful.
Budget: €7 for a single arepa, lunch menu from €11.
