At Pica Pica Arepa Kitchen, we believe that good food is central to the best times in life. Our food is hand-made, slow cooked and best eaten with your hands. Our Venezuelan arepas (grilled corn pocket) is crunchy on the outside, moist on the inside and stuffed with slow cooked meats, and fillings including your choice of sautéed plantains, cheese and flavorful sauces. Our traditional meat and vegan arepas, mixed platters, salads and sides are infused with traditional Venezuelan flavors and ingredients that revolve around the complexities of the spicy, yet sweet and sour flavor dimension derived from yucca roots, plantains, corn and taro. Our entire menu and kitchen is naturally 100% gluten free. Need to feed a crowd? We offer take-out, delivery, and catering options as well! In the heart of the Mission district, we’re proud to showcase our family heritage. Come visit us today!

Wow, we loved this place so much we ate there 3 times. All gluten free and it was all really good. I would love to have a place like this in Austin. GooglePlace - July 2017

To describe this restaurant in less an 345,890,548,900,341 words is nearly impossible- that's how good it is! I don't live in San Francisco, but ever since I went to this restaurant I've craved it. It's been exactly 472 days since I've last tasted this delicious indescribable place. I spent nearly $60 on myself alone because I kept getting seconds then thirds (maybe fourths but that's not important). So go there please and when you do snap me a pic so I can eat vicariously through you. Thank you for your time GooglePlace - April 2017

Small place, but comfy atmosphere. The food is super grub!! As a first timer, the menu was intimidating but each item is explained really well so you get an idea of what you're ordering. The corn crepe/pockets were amazing and the meat was delicious. Could have used a little more saucy flavor but they provide sauces on the table. I could see this being successful as a sit-down service restaurant. (Arepa corn pocket and cachapa crepe pictured below) GooglePlace - March 2017
