Beginning this week, Bozeman will be able to enjoy a taste of Venezuela thanks to the opening of a new food truck.
The new location of La Vaca Mariposa will be at 319 North Seventh Avenue. On June 3 at 11 a.m., it will officially open.
According to the proprietor, Jovanna Granados, the food truck will be open every weekday from 6 a.m. until 10 p.m., and on Fridays and Saturdays it will remain open until 2 a.m.
Menu items will include cachapas (Venezuelan corn pancakes), empanadas, arepas, Venezuelan shawarma, Venezuelan hamburgers, pepitos venezolanos, pasteles venezuelanos and more.
According to Granados’s spouse, Marco Rodriguez, the cuisine of Venezuela is extremely varied and diversified since it is influenced by the country’s many different regions.
However, according to Rodriguez, there is something that will appeal to each and every person.
“La Vaca Mariposa is a family business,”
“The concept originated from the desire to be able to share with you our mouthwatering cuisine, which is comprised of a variety of components that, when combined, result in a cacophony of flavors that I am certain you will find to be irresistible.”
Granados mentioned that the food truck may provide weekend specials that aren’t included on the menu.
Granados is originally from Venezuela, and her mother owned a restaurant there throughout her lifetime. She said that one day she would want to own her own restaurant, but in the meanwhile, she plans to operate a food truck.
Granados declared that she wished to introduce Venezuelan cuisine to a location that does not already provide it.
“We want the people of Bozeman to know that we are going to make this food with a lot of love,” Granados said. “We are excited to share this with the community.” “This is something brand new, and we sincerely hope that you will enjoy it and find it to be very satisfying.”
