We started with an idea and a food truck. We could not find gluten-free or vegan Venezuelan street food in Toronto, which still carried the authentic Venezuelan flavours that we missed from home. So, we set out to fix that. Our restaurant on wheels, Queen Arepa, became the go-to spot for empanadas and arepas that everyone could eat.
Bacan was born out of the confidence and support that our customers gave us. We loved our customers’ eating habits and banter, and we wanted to provide a warm space where they can enjoy our food all year long. With elevated flavours and local ingredients, we created Bacan for our community.
