’17 Food Truck Fest winner replacing Pearl Alley staple

As Pearl Alley ushers out a long-time restaurant staple, it will be welcoming in another local food concept’s first brick and mortar.

Barroluco, an Argentinian comfort food truck, will be replacing the original location of El Arepazo at 47 N Pearl St.

“We are at your service and eagerly waiting to welcome you, our clientele, and those individuals who have yet to embark on their Argentine/Latino journey, here, in the city we love!” wrote the D’Angelo family, the creators of Barroluco, on Facebook.

They’ll offer traditional Argentinian food like empanadas, paella, and churros in a fast-casual setting.

They hope to offer brunches and special dinner options down the road.


Barroluco Argentine Food Truck was established in 2016 and in less than a year has received the following awards:

  • The Best Food Truck at the 2017 Westerville Music and Arts Festival
  • The Best Food Truck at the the 2017 Whitehall Food Truck & Fun Festival
  • The Best Food Truck at the the 2017 Columbus Food Truck Festival
  • 3rd place at the 2017 Springfield Rotary Gourmet Food Truck Competition

The soft opening has yet to be determined but their hours of operations will be 11am – 2 pm Monday – Fridays (TBD nights and weekend).

“Of course, like any Latino, “Mi casa es su casa,” Baroluco wrote. “So stop on by after we open, let’s greet one another, and let us make you a plate of food to your order.”
