The story of The Queen Pepiada
We landed in Cardiff in 2006. I went to many food fairs and festivals. I enjoy the atmosphere of those places. It seemed so exciting that I couldn’t resist being part of the street food business. Arepas seemed to combine in a dish the nostalgia we feel for Venezuela and the lovely and permanent astonishment we feel for people, culture and places I have met everywhere.
Make & Model
A 1994 308D Mercedes Benz. It was the closest to the UPS shipping company Truck. It was the model I wanted.
We serve up Arepas, Tostones, fried Yuca, Papelón con limón (a drink made of Sugarloaf water with lime). We have selected Venezuelan food iconic arepas we fill with fresh ingredients, traditional combinations and our family secrets.
Anyone is our ideal customer. Arepas are for everybody!
Yes, fully self-supporting.
Arepas are naturally defined by their muti-flavoured character. Like music, there is always an option that fills your mood. However we could say ‘The Queen Pepiada’ is literally our signature dish.
Yes! We can grace any private party, wedding, corporate event or lunch of more of 60 people. It also depends on how far from Cardiff it is.
All food festivals! All places have their charm.
