ArePA George was founded in late 2017, by Juan Betancourt. Arepa George has fused the authentic taste of Colombian food with a twist of gluten-free and vegan options, all to give the full experience of tasting the essence of Colombian cuisine. Our mission is to bring those “back home” to the dishes of their native land and newcomers to enjoy the essence in one plate.
We are located in the heart of Humboldt Park, a multi-cultural neighborhood in Chicago. We serve authentic Colombian food from various regions of Colombia. Infused coastal and Andes-styled dishes that would make your heart melt!
