Vamos! Colombian Inspired Food Truck

Food Truck


We are a Tampa based gourmet food truck specializing in Colombian arepas. Each arepa is made from whole corn kernels and formed by hand. Truly a labor of love! We also serve handpressed tostones, fresh fish tacos, rice bowls and more. Our sauces, salsas and guacaole are all made from scratch. Our menu is predominately gluten free and we always offer vegetarian and vegan options.

Production Practices

We cook whole corn kernels until soft, grind the corn to make a dough and hand form the individual arepas. We DO NOT use flour of any type.
