Chef Christina Nguyen and Birk Grudem, the masterminds behind Hola Arepa, roll around Minneapolis, MN in this big, beautiful truck serving up arepas and beyond for fans of bold flavor across the Twin Cities. Specializing in Latin American street food, the duo make their eats from scratch on the daily so every item on the menu is served up piping hot and packed with fresh flavor. This is a foodie experience you don’t want to miss.
Christina and Birk grill their arepas fresh on site and stuff these golden brown cornmeal cakes chock-full of mouth-watering fillings. From meats like chimichurri chicken and slow-roasted pork to blends of full-flavored veggies for the meat-free, you’ll want to try every kind. In addition to arepas, the massive menu has plenty of other Latin American classics. Try a bowl of black beans and sweetened plantains slathered with poblano sauce and citrus crema, for example, or an empanada stuffed with beef picadillo. Not only is this fare all mouth-watering, most of it is also gluten-free. So, even those with dietary restrictions can chow-down here. This is all the more reason to hit up Hola Arepa on the streets or book ‘em for your next event. Either way, you won’t regret it.
