Toronto gets its first arepa food truck

Canada's first arepa food truck has officially hit the streets of Toronto. The Arepa Republic debuted last month and has been serving up handmade Venezuelan cornmeal sandwiches curbside.

While some food trucks have already packed it in for the season, The Arepa Republic has been a regular presence on the streets this fall and plans to continue service for the foreseeable future.

So what can you expect from an arepa truck? The truck's menu boats a whopping nine arepas to choose from. The Rumbera is a cornmeal sandwich stuffed with Venezuelan pulled pork, cheddar cheese and garlic mayo.

Additional arepas include the Reina Pepiada which is a sandwich filled with a chicken avocado cream salad and a veggie option, the Pabellon Veggie, which is stuffed with black beans, sweet plantain, avocado and mozzarella cheese.

Beyond arepas there's also teque単os (cheese sticks), cachapas (corn pancake) and empanadas.
