Food Trucks @ PAW- Vamos Colombian Fusion
August 12, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Vamos! Gourmet Food Truck specializing in Colombian Floridian fusion.
About our Arepas!
Handmade white corn arepas are our signature item! Made from scratch with white corn. We cook whole white corn kernels until they’re soft and then run them through a grinder to make a dough. We then form the dough into corn patties that we grill with a little bit of salt and butter (or olive oil). We then split the arepa and fill it with a variety of fillings including mozzarella cheese, roasted pork shoulder, beef with Colombian Creole sauce, or blackened chicken with chipotle mayo-we even have a vegan version with roasted vegetables and olive oil.
True comfort food!
