The “Arepa Lady” is a Colombian cuisine serving Arepas (corn cakes) and other signature dishes. It started as a late-night food cart decades ago by Maria Piedad Cano, an immigrant from Colombia, to support her children. Born in Medellin, Colombia, Cano began her career in the courtroom, as a lawyer and, eventually, judge. She came to the USA to start a new life away from drug lord Pablo Escobar's terror. In the beginning, she used to serve arepas on the street cart, the food was so flavorful that foodies started writing about it, a cult started! The arepa itself is crisp on the outside, and moist and creamy on the inside.
