A lot of Venezuelan expats swear the same thing: there are no good arepas outside the homeland. Those people have obviously never been to Sammy Arepas, a Venezuelan trailer slinging arepas and empanadas to the good folks of St. Joseph, MI. Since 2016, Sammy has been the spot for authentic Venezuelan flavors.
If you’ve never had an arepa, think of it as a maize-based pancake, but split open and stuffed, sandwich-style, with all kinds of tasty things. Keeping it simple? Go for a plain cheese arepa. Feeling more meaty? Give the shredded beef a look. Need some more Omega 3s? Grab the chicken & avocado salad. Or better yet, go nuts and build your own. Don’t sleep on the empanadas either; Sammy is frying up 5 different types. Track down the truck in the St. Joseph area, or skip the hunt and book them to cater your next event.
