A wonderful Colombian restaurant we went to last week with friends, one of who is Colombian-West Virginian (true story). Fantastic arepas of all types and patacons. Friendly, casual, and inexpensive. Unusual to get a meal (with beer) for $260 reais for 6 people (about US$20 each). Go early, because they close when they feel like it, sometime around 10:30 pm.
You can bring home frozen arepas to make anyway you want.
