When I stood in line at the Jim-N-Nick’s BBQ stand at the Atlanta BBQ fest this past weekend, the cynical part of me said: “This long line better be worth the wait!” Once I made my way to the front of the line I resisted the rack of ribs and ordered the Pulled Pork and Grits with Grilled Corn. In this case my second choice prevailed! I am not sure where how what or who made the grits that creamy, how the sauce was so great or how the corn was so flavorful yet simply seasoned! In fact I don’t remember anything else I tried at the fest… :-/

Pulled Pork Arepa and Chicken Empanada at Arepa Mia Edgewood, Atlanta

I’ve had Arepa’s in Miami. Pretty much only stuffed with cheese. Venezuelan native Lis Hernandez, native brings Arepa’s to life with Meat filled Arepa’s.

I recommend the Pulled Pork Arepa (Penril, $6.50), It was so good I went back to have another.

Try the Chicken Empanada’s (Pollo La Catira, $5.00), they are made from scratch it will change your view of the pre-frozen empanadas you’ve been bombarded with at Mexican and Latin restaurants.

If you are into fresh made juices Arepa Mia has amazing fresh made juices (Guava and Papaya) and they are amazing!
