Traditional Spanish arepas

Our Story

There's an expression in Spanish that says, “La comida primero entra por los ojos,” (the food first goes through the eyes), meaning that food must look tasty to awaken someone’s appetite. At El Antojo, we pride ourselves on carefully preparing and serving the best traditional Spanish food. 


We are a family-owned business dedicated to sharing the most delicious Colombian cuisine and Latin American flavours. We started out by distributing our famous white, yellow, and sweet corn arepas to a variety of Latin American stores and restaurants throughout Kitchener, Toronto, and London. As our business started to grow, we added other products to our distribution list including empanadas, morcilla (blood sausages), and chorizo.


In 2020, due to the high demand for our products, and rapid growth of the business, we decided it was time to take the next step and open our doors to the wider Waterloo Region community. Located in Kitchener, ON, we offer a wide variety of traditional Colombian dishes such as Bandeja Paisa and Ajiaco, as well as, other tasty treats including churros, empanadas, and buñuelos. Oh, and of course our famous arepas too!


We are committed to serving our customers the most high-quality products, that’s why all our ingredients are always fresh, natural, and locally sourced. 


If you are from Latin America, our unique sazon will take you back home to the delicious flavours of your Abuela's food. And if you are looking for a new gastronomic experience, our menu offers an extensive diversity of options to satisfy all types of tastes. 


Antojo means cravings, and we guarantee that our delicious food will satisfy all your cravings!
