Video: Take a pandemic-safe trip to Venezuela with Sabor Caribe

In this "Still Serving" video series, the team at Sabor Caribe shares their pandemic story and how they've worked to keep the business open and customers happy while prioritizing the health and safety of the entire community. 

Sabor Caribe opened in 2016 at 662 Madison Avenue in The Edge. It serves traditional Venezuelan and Caribbean foods like arepas, tequeños, and pastelitos, as well as dishes unique to Sabor Caribe like its Builder sandwich. It's french bread with grill beef or chicken, tomatoes, cabbage mix, potato sticks, and mozzarella cheese. 

Sabor Caribe is family owned and operated. Alejandro Romero, who moved to Memphis from Venezuela, said the city reminds him of his hometown. Sabor Caribe is family owned and operated. Left to Right: Owner Alejandro Romero, Vanessa, Rafael, Diego, and Marco. (High Ground News)
The "Still Serving" video series is spotlighting the stories of five locally-owned restaurants and asking how they're faring after ninth months of heavy restrictions on area eateries. "Still Serving" is produced in partnership by Forever Ready Productions and High Ground News with financial support from Epicenter Memphis. 

Now, more than even, local businesses need their city's support. We hope this video makes you hungry and you head straight to Sabor Caribe for arepas to go.
