Best arepas I ever tried in North America!!!They are so fresh and tasty with different filling options. Pink and green sauces are so good as well and free. The other arepa place charge for sauces:(.
This is mainly venezuelan food, but they also have Colombian tasty food, like empanadas.
Passion fruit (maracuya) juice is very good.

It´s a coozy small place just 5 minutes off highway 16. We were looking for Colombian food to remind us of home, but ended up eating at ´the neighbours´ instead, much to our full satisfaction! The food is great, there is plenty of choice, and we truly enjoyed the experience. We couldn´t resist to take a few tasty snacks home too. The place is run by a nice Venezuelan family who work hard to offer a nice eating experience to their customers. We will definetely go back many times whenever we need to be in Edmonton.

It's a small restaurant with lots of flavor to offer. The owners are happy people who make you feel welcomed and the food is a reflection of their personalities. Although the place is not fancy it's welcoming and, at the end of the day, the food is what is the most important part. I'm not sure if hallacas are available all year round but we tried them and they were so good [like back home] and the pastelitos make you feel you're back to childhood [so bad there was no RikoMalt, though ;) ]. Not convinced? just come and give it a try, there are many good dishes to choose from and treat your tastebuds, even the coffee is great [yes, better than the fast-food chain one].

I stopped in today to try El Fogon. It is a simple and quaint spot, the latin music playing fits the theme. The owners are genuine and the service is friendly. The menu is simple and the food is certainly authentic.

I ordered the Cachapas with cheese and beef. A wonderful sweet corn pancake with cheese and shredded beef. A simple and delightful meal, perfectly prepared.

This is a simple, excellent family owned spot with soul.

Thank you
