Incredible… but every year I visit the Fiestas de San Sebastián to get in touch with the roots of the Puerto Rican culture… to listen to the music, to say hi to people I haven’t seen in a while, to visit the artesanos and to enjoy the local Puerto Rican frituras.
Well… the frituras not a lot anymore because unfortunately as I have mentioned to you time and time again, most of the frituras in Puerto Rico are not typically vegetarian. Although they can be made vegetarian very, very easily.
The thing is that as Puerto Rican and typical as the Fiestas de San Sebastián are… what I enjoyed the most this year were…. Venezuelan Arepas filled with Melted Cheese. I did wash it down with a freshly squeezed orange juice to “puertoricanize” the experience a bit.
These arepas were made with corn flour and a touch of sweetness. Made on the griddle almost to order, this arepa was delicious and hit the spot perfectly.
