Venezuelan restaurant dishes home-style Latin food in Mounds View
Cravers of genuine, home-style Latin food such as traditional arepas or yuca fries are about to have their taste buds satisfied at the recently opened Arepa Bite.
Arepa Bite, a traditional Venezuelan restaurant, opened two months ago just off County Highway 10 in Mounds View and aims to offer diners with little time to spare a new option. At first glance, housed in a repurposed fast food pad, the new establishment looks like any other run-of-the-mill joint. A closer examination of the menu and glance at the Venezuelan cultural images displayed on the walls hints at the restaurants’ true nature – providing a quick yet authentic Latin food option.
“Everything is the same food (in America). Burger, pizzas,” co-owner Vannessa Fazio said referring to why she and her husband decided to open a restaurant. “So why don’t we try this? We did it.”
