Everything on the menu is wheat- and gluten-free at these casual spots in the Mission and the Napa Oxbow Market hawking “fresh Venezuelan street fare." The specialties of the house are “arepas” (shown above) - “little corn pillows of goodness” with meat or vegetable fillings - and “maize’wiches” made with sweet cornbread. The gluten-free menu is not an afterthought - in fact, the restaurant is on the forefront of fighting celiac disease and has partnered with the North Bay Celiacs organization to help raise awareness.
