Zudaka, Boulder CO

Location: 4457 N Broadway St, Boulder, CO 80304, USA

We had a busy schedule of roller derby while in Denver/Boulder area, but we also wanted to try as many things as possible. When I saw there was a vegetarian Latin restaurant where most things could be made vegan and I could try foods I have never heard of before I knew we had to try it. We could only fit it in after we had already eaten so we got some take out to eat in between bouts. Zudaka is a tiny hole in the wall place that we drove right by the first time. When we arrived there was no one else there, but the place smelled amazing and the lady working there was incredibly nice.
We ordered two Arepas (traditional Venezuelan gluten free corn meal dough pocket sandwich) - One Negrita Dulce - black beans, white cheese and sweet plantains (no close up photo of this one as it did not look very pretty, but it is the bottom left item in the photo above). This was really good - I have only ever had plantain chips before so it was fun to taste a cooked plantain. It was a little bit sweet, and the black beans and cheese paired nicely with it. Really good.

The second Arepa we tried was La de Pollo - chunky meatless chicken with caramelized onions and green peppers. This was amazing! My definitely my favorite of the two. Really savory and yum!

The last thing we tried were the Hallequitas - two hallaquitas (venezuelan tamales) served with black beans, fresh salsa, guasa and one little arepita. When we got our food the lady working told us how we should eat these - unwrap them and put everything on them including the juice from the beans - the messier they are the better. So we took her advice and these were very messy, but so good. I love tamales and these did not disappoint.

Overall - Zudaka was very good and I would go back if I am in Boulder again.
