EpaChamo Venezuelan Arepas Bar and Grill
EpaCharmo translates roughly to, "Hi, dude!" It's a fitting name, then, for this amicable and energetic spot, where siblings Hector, Mike, and Carmen work together to bring a taste of Venezuela to Durham. In the kitchen, Mike and his team anchor their menu with savory arepas—cornmeal flatbreads stuffed with tasty fillings. The popular reina pepiada, for instance, is packed with shredded chicken salad, seasoned mayo, green peas, and avocado. Behind the bar, meanwhile, Carmen blends together piña coladas, mojitos, and other tropical concoctions, all while Hector greets visitors and ensures EpaCharmo maintains its welcoming "Hi, dude!" vibe.
