Why arepas? García explains that "it is the main dish in our country. Normally, we grow up eating arepas for breakfast or for dinner."
Zhenya Karelina, a graduate student at MIT, and Neishay Ayub were among the HubWeek attendees lined up to get a sample. Ayub said she had won free tickets to HubWeek from work. Both described the food as "really good."
García says the best part of her job is "meeting a lot of people and getting feedback from them that they really love [our food]".
