Brand New: Coffeecol Arepa Bar & Grill, Teaneck, NJ

Arepa Sign

Since late November, Coffeecol Arepa Bar & Grill has been serving an array of arepas.  For those not familiar with arepas, they are unleavened corn patties that are stuffed with different types of fillings and have become quite a popular ethnic food in the city over the last few years. From Wikipedia:

The arepa is a flat, round, unleavened patty made of cornmeal or flour which can be grilled, baked, boiled, or fried, steamed etc. The characteristics vary by color, flavor, size, and the food with which it may be stuffed, depending on the region. Arepa is a native sort of bread made of ground corn (or flour), water, and salt which is fried into a thick bread. It can be topped or filled with meat, eggs, tomatoes, salad, cheese, shrimp, or fish depending on the meal. Breakfast egg or cheese are the most common arepa fillings. There are several recipes for fillings.

Given the name of the place, the arepas are the centerpiece of the menu. A breakfast section features eggs and other breakfast meats paired as fillings. A main section for lunch and dinner features chicken, beef, chorizo and shrimp options. There is also a make you own section with every filling from the menu is available to create your own composed concoction.


The menu also includes baked breads (rolls, bagels), pastries, breakfast sandwiches, hot and cold sandwiches, burgers, hot dogs and more. An entire cafe selection of coffeehouse drinks (coffee, tea, hot coco), soft drinks and smoothies rounds out the drinks menu. View Coffeecol Menu (PDF)
