Yerba Buena is Back….Again.
Posted by cmh gourmand on May 16, 2013
Not unlike the Terminator, Yerba Buena keeps going down for the count and then comes back from nowhere. When I last check-in in with Carlos and Carolina about the fate of Yerba Buena in Spring of 2012, the trailer was for sale because they were too busy with a new restaurant and an even newer child. But last week I saw the trailer back in the old spot. I called the restaurant, left a message….No response. And today….it was open. Yerba Buena is the mobile version of El Arepazo which means great food within walking distance of my house. El Arepazo started as a stall at the Latino Festival – then became a restaurant and then a second restaurant. The trailer has a really good run in 2011 but then ran in to some problems with their location.
Carlos and Carolina Gutierrez are the husband and wife owners of the restaurant. You can follow their story at the El Arepazo Facebook page.
The mobile menu mirrors the restaurant menu and is the same as the last time the trailer was working. Items include arepas (corn cakes), plantains, chorizo, empanadas and assort Latino beverages.
