When the currently under-construction Edgewater Public Market opens sometime this fall, Arepas House will be among its vendors.
Chef and owner Jorge Dominguez said the 3.5-year-old food truck’s new stall space inside the market will offer a menu of arepas and other Venezuelan offerings that will go beyond what he was able to offer in the food truck. The Arepas House stall will open with the market, which is currently shooting to debut on or around Sept. 15.
That menu will include a new line of gourmet arepas made with salmon and other high-quality ingredients that Dominguez says are basically impossible to find in Venezuela but coveted by Denver customers.
The new stall will also stock imported Venezuelan soft drinks such as Malta, a carbonated drink made with barley, hops and water that have not been fermented and has a sweet, mollasses-like taste and Frescolita, a red soda with a cream soda-like taste.
The Edgewater Arepas House will also sell a large variety of candies imported from Venezuela. Of course, the new stall will continue to offer the standard chicken, beef, chicken salad and vegetarian arepas currently available on the truck, plus the Patacone, a beef and coleslaw sandwich made with two fried plaintain slices instead of bread. It is also adding two new vegan arepas to its menu, Dominguez said.
But while Dominguez is now turning his attention to the new stall, he’s not abandoning the food truck, which he says will continue to show up at events around town such as Civic Center Eats and the Pearl Street Farmer’s Market.
