Owners Pat Fettig, Brett and Dadnitri Johnson first opened their food truck in 2014 as a way for Dadnitri, a Venezuela native, to share a taste of home with the hungry folks of Greater Cincinnati and pay homage to the country she dearly missed.

After several successful years and gathering a loyal following of foodie fans, the food truck embarked on opening a permanent location

Open 11 a.m.- 9 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, the restaurant offers a plentiful menu featuring a selection of arepas like the Gringo Pepiada and the caprese; entrees like the pabellon, the national dish of Venezuela; salads; finger food; dessert; and of course some empanadas, like the Carne Mechada and the queso and plantains. 

The food truck will still be appearing at events around town.
