AREKIE - Latin/Indian Fusion Cuisine Food Truck operating in Southwest Florida.
What does AREKIE mean? Arekie is the unexpected fusion between Latin and Indian food.
'AREpa' (pre-cooked corn flour dough, formed into a patty and filled with your choice of ingredients) and 'franKIE' (homemade Indian flatbread grilled and stuffed with a variety of delicious fillings and seasoned to suit your taste).
Arekie started with the sparkle of our love of world travels and the craving of having the delicious Latin and Indian food in a street style. After looking for it everywhere, and trying different restaurants, we came up with the idea of a fusion cuisine food truck, so people can enjoy Latin and Indian food in a very unique and different way.
Our mission is to provide the community with a tantalizing food trailer experience, with the authenticity of the common street food we have grown up with. So for the very first time in SWFL you will be able to enjoy Latin food with the touch of the Indian flavored spices. Arekie’s delicious and healthy fusion food will become an addiction for any who tastes it.
Our co-founder team is a great one-two punch of fantastic food and savvy business sense.

Monish Mansharamani was selected as one of PDN magazine's 30 photographers to watch. As an avid cook, outdoor enthusiast and traveler, his work draws inspiration from the things he loves - good food, people, travel, and the stories that bring them all together.
Together we have come up with a fresh concept, authentic MENU, and an ambitious but achievable plan to build it into a thriving new business.
