Latin Street Food

This saturday we went to hang out in the Minneapolis Pioneers and Soldiers Cemetery. Where Jeremy Messersmith and Lucy Michelle and the Velvet Lapelles performed a benefit concert to restore the cemetery’s 1928 steel fence. It felt great to soak up the warm autumn sun and listen to some really good music. Close to the eve of Halloween, Jeremy played his entire album from “The Reluctant Graveyard”. It was all meshing together. There was the Hola Arepa food truck serving some Latin cuisine. They specialize in Venezuelan stuffed arepas. What is an arepa? It’s a cornmeal patty cooked on the grilled and stuffed with goodness. They have local and sustainable ingredients :black bean, pulled pork and pulled chicken. I had the black bean with tomatoes, picked cabbage and lots of house made salsa. The bright pink cabbage was very pretty in pink. It was tasty, I did like the corn meal arepa, a light corn bread sandwich. Good bargain I would like to go again and try some of the meats. I guess I will have to go to the website and find the next location.
