SO, WHAT THE HECK IS AN AREPA?
HOW WE STARTED
Our philosophy is simple yet powerful: food can be both tasty and nutritious, and should be accessible to everyone. Whether you're vegetarian, vegan, gluten-intolerant, picky, or just a straight up carnivore, you will be treated and served with love.
From humble beginnings, in the urban capital of Venezuela - Caracas. Street culture and culinary arts inspired us to travel, discover and manifest our passion for food and multiculturalism through mixing flavors and settle in one of the biggest international hubs of the world - Amsterdam (We love our city).
As demand for homemade arepas keeps growing, we decided to continue with our dream! Bring an inclusive South American flavour to Amsterdam. That's the reason behind our Latin Brunch and all our food, we want to inspire a sense of community around one of the things that bring us together - FOOD!
The Arepa Shop represents not only a brand but a movement inspired by all walks of life. We're making good food with a lot of heart, for the people, by the people.
