Tasty Tuesday: Guasaca

Kate Gray

Looking for a nutritious alternative to salads that doesn't compromise on flavor? Look no further than Guasaca – a vibrant eatery that seamlessly blends South American and American culinary influences to create a delightful fusion of flavors.

At Guasaca, their menu is a celebration of freshness and affordability. While they're renowned for their mouthwatering Arepas, their offerings extend far beyond. From nourishing bowls and salads to indulgent super bowls, Guasaca caters to every palate with a diverse array of options. And let's not forget their tempting selection of side items and desserts, perfect for rounding off your meal on a sweet note.

Whether you're a meat lover, pescatarian, or vegetarian, Guasaca has you covered. With a variety of protein choices, including fish and vegetarian options, you can customize your bowl or signature Arepa to suit your preferences. And for those following a vegan lifestyle, Guasaca offers plenty of plant-based options, ensuring there's something for everyone to enjoy.

One of my personal favorites is the shredded chicken Arepa, featuring succulent shredded chicken, flavorful black beans, zesty pico de gallo, creamy white cheese, and their irresistible cilantro sauce. For a kick of heat, I love adding their fiery red sauce, but beware – it's not for the faint of heart! If spice isn't your thing, fear not; the garlic sauce offers a deliciously mellow alternative that's equally satisfying.

With six convenient locations across the Triangle area, including their Hillsborough Street spot just steps away from NC State's campus, Guasaca makes wholesome, flavorful dining accessible to all. So why not treat yourself to a culinary adventure at Guasaca today? Your taste buds will thank you.
