I was very happy to see that my favourite neighbourhood restaurant Arepera du Plateau is now 100% gluten-free and joins the small list of 100% gluten-free restaurants in Montreal. It is a great little Venezuelan restaurant on Duluth, corner du Bullion. It used to be almost completely gluten-free and they recently made a few tweaks to make it 100%.
I always order an arepa (kinda like a corn bread sandwich), usually the avocado and cheese, and they bring bottles of the green (avocado cream) and red (spicy) sauce to the table so you can add as much as you’d like. I also love the gausacaca arepa, which is avocado mashed up with onions and tomato. The soup and plates (with rice, beans and an arepa bread on the side) are also delicious. My favourite starters are the cassava chips and the plantains.
This is a great place for an inexpensive delicious meal with friends. Everyone can find something to eat as there are many meat, vegetarian and vegan options. They do not serve any alcohol but have lots of delicious juice. It is a casual environment and in the evening they sometimes have a live singer. They don’t take reservations and it can get busy but it usually doesn’t take long to get a table if you are 4 or less (it can be hard with a group). In the summer my friends and I like to pick up arepas to go and eat them picnic style in Lafontaine or Jeanne Mance park.
