Another Chain Restaurant – or – A New Culinary Adventure


On a little adventure the other day trying to find an open Indian restaurant, my partner and I saw a place called Arepas and Co. The place claims to serve Columbian comfort food, including the famous namesake, of which there are countless variants depending upon region (including Venezuela).

The SO has longed to try the food since that day. I’ve been postponing, trying to get back into the swing of workouts and swimming while maintaining a happy, heavy writing schedule. Today is the day, though. I cannot put it off any longer. And as the blog post title attests, this is not a mom and pop kind of place.

I’ll try to have a positive attitude. Heck, even chain restaurants start with a few stalwart folks trying to support a family. And as they go, this one serves something a little different while also not being a worldwide conglomerate. So maybe purchasing their wares won’t fund a proxy war in some unsuspecting nation. ~sigh~ I know, be positive. And I’ll probably like it, even if I feel the bloat afterward.

Have you eaten Columbian cuisine?

  1. Nope....that is probably the only thing I have not eaten. Wishing you would post again to let us know how it went.

    1. It went about as expected. ~grin~ The serving was served 'open face', not near so pretty as what I pictured, and I'm tasting it hours later after feeling seriously bloated. Eh... Maybe I'll do a post, though. ~grin~ Be well!

  2. Maybe it'll be good? Some of those hole in the wall places serve the best food.
