Arepaland was born as an idea from a group of Venezuelan friends living abroad for more than 20 years. After innumerable delicious dinners enjoying the Arepas – one the most hidden treasures from Venezuela – and a real desire to bring this to you, we have decided to put our best effort and share this wonderful dish with all the food lovers that enjoy healthy, tasty and good food.
Melbourne’s dynamic and diverse food environment provides the perfect ground to make this idea come true. We thought long and hard whether to open an “arepera” (a restaurant which only sells arepas) or to give people like you the flexibility to enjoy a good arepa in different locations. We sat our mind on the design used to decorate our amazing Arepaland Food Trailer. Our Arepaland Food Trailer will offer the flexibility to reach all the places and corners of Victoria.
Following Venezuelan’s traditions, Arepaland will provide the most authentic flavors of the Venezuelan cuisine and it will also add some twist to satisfy the most demanding taste of its clients.
Our design has been inspired by our multiple travels. Venezuelans travel miles for an arepa. We used to bring packages with our ingredients and flavors and really keep our Venezuelan traditions alive. We have amazing friends who have also helped us with ideas, recipes and recommendations – including the Venezuelan designer who dedicated time to allow this dream to come true through the concept of “Arepaland package has arrived!”.
The story of us has just started. We have been eagerly busy in the kitchen for few months now getting the flavours ‘just right’ so that you will become an arepa lover. Don’t be shy and tell us what you think about us, our arepas and what you would like to see in the menu.
