Hola Arepa is a restaurant in South Minneapolis serving our take on Latin street food. We serve Venezuelan-style stuffed arepas, Latin American-influenced small plates, and tropical craft cocktails.

Chef Christina Nguyen & her partner Birk Grudem started Hola Arepa as a food truck in 2011. Though the truck has been mostly in hibernation since they opened their brick & mortar restaurant in 2014, you can always enjoy their arepas, other dishes & cocktails in a space inspired by their travels to beach towns and charming old cafes in South America, Central America and Mexico.
