Arepa is the bread of Venezuelans; a flattened and grilled corn meal bun originating from South America. It is an indigenous dish found mostly in countries like Colombia and Venezuela.
Arepa sandwiches are sold in rural and urban environments alike. Twenty four hour restaurants, in cities like Caracas, make it the ‘queen dish’ on street food.
Arepa Café brought the corn meal sandwich to Urban Toronto – established since 2009 on Queen St. West. The experience has been one of honesty and integrity contributing to the Canadian market and becoming a Venezuelan restaurant selling arepas in DT Toronto.
Venezuelan Urbanity is an expression of what can happen to Venezuelans who immigrate and adapt with its surroundings. It is inspiration from Venezuelans to Venezuelans; working hard today for a better understanding of tomorrow.
