About the restaurant
Where are the hottest buns in London, you ask? Well, Guasa Tooting Market is definitely a strong contender with their offering of punchy, flavour-packed arepas (traditional Venezuelan buns). Naturally gluten free, nut and dairy free, Guasa’s homemade arepa buns are grilled and then generously filled with your choice of vegan, vegetarian or meaty ingredients. Think smoky black beans, roasted pork collar and crunchy pork crackling or juicy teriyaki style jackfruit. Diners can also choose to have their arepa in a bowl, with their preferred main topping as well as pico de gallo (salsa), tajadas (fried plantain) and fiery sauces. Adding to the fun, there is a great selection of drinks, including Amazonian gin, Venezuelan rum, cocktails and beer. Located within the bustling market space, there’s always a bit of a queue (understandably) so reserving a table is highly recommended.
