Arepas & Co has opened its doors at the PNC Second Street Market in downtown Dayton to introduce members of the surrounding communities to a new, flavorful food concept known as Colombian comfort food. Our menu features informal, popular dishes such as arepas (white corn patties), Colombian platter (home-cooked style meal), empanadas (yellow corn turnovers), and patacones (fried green plantains) that cater to patrons looking for something new, tasty and affordable. Arepas & Co also offers Calentado (Colombian-style breakfast) on Saturdays, Tres Leches (three milk) cupcake for dessert, and fruit-flavored colas. Our dishes are vegetarian and vegan friendly as well as gluten free.
Arepas & Co will be celebrating its official grand opening July 19th, 20th, and 21st which coincides with the celebration of Colombia’s Independence Day on July 20th.
Arepas and Co. opens on Thursdays and Fridays from 11 am to 3 pm, and Saturdays from 8 am to 3 pm. Our location is at the PNC Second Street Market, 600 E. Second St. Dayton, OH 45402. Questions or comments can be directed to Lisa Perdomo at 937-620-4099.
“Our dishes are inspired by recipes that have been made popular by street vendors in Colombia, who are known for providing simple yet delicious foods” said Lisa Perdomo, owner and operator of Arepas & Co. “In fact, the way we marinade our meats is a recipe passed down to my husband by one of his aunts in Colombia whose finger-licking meals are highly rated by friends and family” added Lisa.
