Take your taste buds to Venezuela, no passport required. Ávila Arepa (ÁA) is a one-of-a-kind urban casual, Latin restaurant located on Whyte Avenue in Edmonton. Inspired by the popular and traditional Venezuelan arepas—a popular and traditional Venezuelan corn-based bun, filled with toppings such as beef, chicken, pork, cheese and avocado—Ávila Arepa gives you unpretentious, authentic food stuffed with love.
Owner Rolando "El Jefe" Sandrea, a former chemical engineer, has turned his kitchen into a personal lab where he experiments with traditional recipes that have been passed down from generation to generation, making their way to him. He takes these recipes and makes them his own while preserving the Venezuelan time-honoured culinary roots and tastes.
