Puyero Venezuelan Flavor Celebrates International Arepas Day

Puyero Venezuelan Flavor, National Arepas Day

Puyero Venezuelan Flavor (524 S. 4th Street) commemorates El Día Internacional De La Arepa (World Arepa Day) with an assortment of new Arepas available from September 7th to September 9th.

As Venezuela’s most popular dish, it is no surprise that Venezuelans have created a special day to honor the arepa, paying homage to the country’s rich culture and heritage.

“Arepas are the quintessential meal in Venezuela.” says co-owner Manuela Villasmil. “They unify all of Venezuela, no matter who you are or were you come from, everybody has an arepa at their table.” Fellow co-owner Gil Arends added, " They are an important part of Venezuelan identity."

At Puyero, the special menu of additions celebrates the explosion of flavors from these four new unique arepas. Manuela said, "We're starting off with the Tropical which is stuffed with our pork shoulder and a homemade pineapple pico de gallo. We’re bringing back our spinach dough arepa, this time stuffing it with a greek salad, tzatziki and feta cheese to make La Griega. The De Carrito arepa, is our spin of popular late nighte food truck flavors. It can be filled with your choice of either grilled chicken or beef with pico de gallo, white cheese, ketchup and our homemade green mayo. The Pollo Frito is what the literal translation of its name means, an arepa stuffed with fried chicken, pickles and our homemade sriracha pink sauce. "

The featured arepas showcase the different sides of Venezuelan lifestyle and identity, taking the many flavor profiles found in classic Venezuelan cuisine and adding a new twist. 

Traditionally made with ground maize dough and often split in two to make sandwiches, Puyero is spicing up authentic arepas with unique and delicious ingredients and flavor combinations. 

Owner Simon Arends said, "This special menu might be all gluten free but certainly not gluttony free. So give a shout to those gluten free friends of yours."  Que empiece la gozadera!
 
The new arepas will be served at Puyero Venezuelan Flavor all weekend starting on Friday, September 7th through Sunday, September 9th, along with all regular menu items.

Tropical - $8.75
Arepa filled with pork shoulder and pineapple pico de gallo

South Street Welcomes Adult Swim's Rick and Morty's Giant Rickmobile on Tues May 23rd

Adult Swim's Rick and Morty-themed “Rickmobile” will touch down on South Street tomorrow outside Tattooed Mom's during its only appearance in the Pennsylvania and New Jersey area. 

Wubba-lubba-dub-dub! If you haven’t heard yet, there’s a larger-than-life Rick Sanchez riding across America at this very moment. The giant  “Rickmobile” is driving from Los Angeles to Atlanta before stopping in dozens of cities across the U.S. during the “Don’t Event Trip Road Trip.” The road trip officially began on May 11 in Atlanta, and continues through Oct. 8 at New York Comic Con. 

Once arriving on South Street,  the Rickmobile will be parked and hosted by Tattooed Mom's (530 South) during the ultimate Taco Tuesday event between 6-9pm. 

At the Rickmobile, get all of your exclusive, limited quantity Rick and Morty gear when the store comes to Philadelphia! Then chow down on Tattooed Mom's ultimate Taco Tuesday with $1 all beef or veggie bean tacos all night or they sell out. Plus $2.50 Tecates all day and half off all drafts 5-7pm and 10-11pm. 

Sales at the Rickmobile will ONLY be from 6-9pm. Plan on getting in line early! Already nearly 3,000 people have confirmed interest in the event on Facebook.

Tattooed Mom's has a history with the show as they have hosted Rick and Morty events in the past. Rickmobile organizers and road crew contacted Tattooed Mom's special to be the only site in the region during this special tour across America. 

"Tattooed Mom's discourages growing up as you get older," Tattooed Mom's event coordinator Wedge Wegman. "Rick and Morty is is the perfect example of getting older and staying true to yourself, and doing what you want to do - and the perfect embodiment of love and good times. And that's our mantra."
