When all you want is to wrap up in the comfort of a food blanket, nothing satisfies like a tall order from Viva Las Arepas—not that the owner will let you place it. Go in solo and ask for too much (say, Viva’s last-supper-worthy chalupas and a veggie arepa and an empanada and fried cheese), and soft-spoken Felix Arellano will say, “I can sell you anything, but I don’t want to see you waste.” How’s that for love? Although after the helluvaday that took you there in the first place, who said anything about not finishing?
