Lockdowns and travel bands were tough, but fortunately Londoners had the next best thing to hopping on a plane and flying to vibrant Latin America – indulging in its delicious cuisine from their very own city with Guasa. And now, many of them will have an even shorter journey to their beloved Guasa venue with our new stores in Greenwich and Croydon.
Dubbed ‘an architectural fashion show,’ Greenwich’s stylish new Design District complex is the perfect new home for our mouth-watering Venezuelan food. Guasa lovers can treat themselves after a leisurely shop or game of rooftop basketball court with one of our tasty Aperas sold inside the caterpillar-shaped food hall.
In Croydon, you’ll truly feel like you have been transported straight to Latin America as the Sluggers at Boxpark oozes with its culture and cuisine. You have the chance to indulge in Latin American baseball culture while your taste buds hit home runs with Guasa’s signature dishes.
Of course, customers closer to our original two venues, Mercato Metropolitano and Old Spitafield Market, can still head there for their Venezuelan food hit. The former, in the south, boasts London’s first sustainable community market and brims with trendy stalls. Further north is the latter, a bustling and covered market with 350 years of history.
Okay, you’re impressed with the variety of fun spaces you can fill your stomach up with Guasa, but we know you love us for our actual food (and for good reason). Let us remind you why that is.
Buffalo Beef. Two Little Pigs. Smoky Beans. Guasa Chicken. Vegan Jackfruit. We apologise for increasing your appetite at the site of these enticing words. They’re the amazing combinations of our Arepas that keep you coming back. Guasa’s mission is to bring these traditional Venezuelan buns to the masses.
One of the many great perks of our heavenly, handmade, artisan buns is their white corn base. That means they’re naturally gluten-free. The premium buns are traditionally grilled and stuffed with any vegan, veggie or meat - an art no-one does better than Guasa.
Want to wash down your Arepa with something equally satisfying? Choose from the best aged rums Venezuela can offer, available on our menu. Having a party? We can send our delicious Arepas and other treats to your home or office. Want to be involved in the creation process? Our DIY kits are your answer. You can even hire our food truck to spice up your event. This might sound cheesier than our popular, salty, fresh Llanero, but Guasa really has something for everyone and all occasions.
