Originally a highly popular food truck plating perfectly executed Latin fare, Hola Arepa’s decision to open up a brick-and-mortar store in 2014 came as no surprise. The restaurant shines at brunch, when the kitchen sends out excellent tostada chilaquiles moistened with tomatillo salsa and piled with black beans, queso fresco, pickled onions and fried eggs; and, of course, breakfast-leaning arepas, those addictive Venezuelan corn cakes, like one stuffed with chorizo, eggs and cotija cheese.
Hola Arepa opened up its big turquoise food truck in 2011 and has been feeding Twin Citizens arepas ever since. Open for lunches downtown in the summer. (Currently closed for the season).
Hola Arepa found a home & opened a brick & mortar restaurant in May 2014 in South Minneapolis. Hours listed above. Arepas & other Latin small plates, plus a full bar with a craft cocktail program.
