Sample tasty bites from the menu - and learn about the culture and customs! Venezuelan-raised brothers offer arepas, plus fried plantain sandwiches & juices at this chill spot.
Simon A. Arends, Gil J. Arends and Manuela Villasmil announce the grand opening of Puyero Venezuelan Flavor at 524 S. 4th Street in South Street Headhouse District. This casual Venezuelan street food concept specializes in quick-serve arepas, patacones, and other incredibly delicious food. Dishes pair perfectly with tropical specialty drinks made in-house that are sweet and perfect for Philadelphia's hot summer days. The dining room is fresh, colorful and vibrant with humorous proverbs that will make you laugh and music that will make you want to tap your feet. Grand opening festivities will include free giveaways between March 17-19th including arepas, churros and other signature Latin dishes.
Puyero is a family affair - being designed and operated by brothers Simon and Gil, along with Gil's wife Manuela. This is the first restaurant for all three young new restaurant owners. The menu is designed by Claudia Zamora, a Venezuelan chef living who is just as passionate about Venezuelan food and culture as the Simon, Gil and Manuela.
“We want to introduce rich flavors and combinations that people in Philly would never had thought of before,” said one of the three partners, Simon Arends. “We also want to showcase who Venezuelans are and as one of the different stories that come from Latin America.”
Puyero currently seats 22 people inside, with expanded seating coming outside later in the spring. Starting this Friday, Puyero will open every day (Tuesday through Sunday) at 11:30am for lunch and stay open through dinner until 10:00pm Tuesday through Thursday and Sunday, and 11:00pm on Friday and Saturday. The entire menu is available during lunch and dinner - with brunch options to come later in the spring. Delivery is now being offered through Caviar.
