LUIS VEGA – VENEZUELA

AREPAMANIA COMPETITION: Saturday August 13 6:00pm-6:45pm

Luis Vega is an entrepreneur from Caracas, Venezuela. He immigrated to Canada 9 years ago and has called Toronto home since then. He had been the managing director behind many business ventures before finding his passion in the beloved arepas of his homeland. Six years ago he opened El Arepazo, a small food stall in multicultural Kensington Market. Through the years, his arepas gained a loyal fanbase due to their impressive size and flavours that are both homey and exotic. Luis recently turned the little stall into a full blown restaurant where he was able to dive into the full expanse of Venezuelan cuisine.
