I've been wanting to try Viva Las Arepas ever since reading about it on Yelp but never got a chance until yesterday. David and I were looking for somewhere different to eat and I suggested this place since it wasn't far from where we were. It's on the corner of Las Vegas Blvd and Oakey, near the Stratosphere Hotel.
In case you don't know what arepas are, they're kind of like a Venezuelan sandwich. They also have pork spareribs, chicken, and beef, which I assume are cooked over a wood flame, since the place smells of wood and there are logs stacked in the hallway. Here's what we ordered: Garlic Shrimp, Vegetarian, Reina Pepiada (cold chicken salad), Carne Asada, and an order of fried yuca and chicharron. It was too much food but we couldn't decide what to order. The tab was $35 for the two of us.
