Moon Frog Arepas might be one of the best food trucks in the city of Tampa. The low-key concept offers up fresh Venezuelan cuisine in the downtown Tampa area, and its recipes have received near perfect 5-star reviews from customers.
Owners Shane and Yosmar are all about delivering the best food to the city of Tampa.
Shane is a Boston native, who spent fifteen years in the aviation sector. He served in worldwide missions as an Air Force F-15 weapons troop, an Army Apache pilot, and a PSA Airlines pilot. When Shane met Yosmar, he quickly fell for her grace, beauty, and especially her cooking, according to Moon Frog’s website.
Moon Frog Arepas wows diners in Tampa
Yosmar grew up working in her family’s restaurant in Venezuela. When she came to America she brought her family recipes, which became a smash-hit with friends. Everyone loved the new flavors and textures of the Venezuelan food, and they kept coming back for more. It made the duo extremely happy to see people’s delight and satisfaction when they bit into an arepa for the first time.
Serving authentic Venezuelan cuisine in the heart of the city
In an effort to prolong this happiness, Moon Frog Arepas was started. Its mission is to introduce high-quality Venezuelan food to as many Americans as possible.
You can find the food truck at 412 North Florida Avenue in downtown Tampa Monday through Friday from 11am-7pm.
