[W.I.P] Cambur Authentic Venezuelan Streetfood

Branding Development.

m (plural cambures)
/kamˈbuɾ/, [kãmˈbuɾ]
(Venezuela) Banana (fruit) Synonyms: banana, platano, guineo, banano.

Cambur is not only a place to taste Venezuelan arepas and patacones, pepitos and guarapitaso or where to get to get products produced in the country itself, it’s a meeting point for the Venezuelan community abroad. A place to share and support, to gather and enjoy.

In recent years, Venezuela has not only gone through socio-political turmoil but also has been dealing with a humanitarian crisis like we, venezuelans, could have never imagined specially knowing our country posses the largest oil reserves in the world.  As a consequence of the harsh living conditions of the country, exodus has been the only way to survive for many Venezuelans who have left not only their homes but also their families in hopes to find aside from an opportunity abroad to produce and provide for their families back in Venezuela, but also a chance to live.

Our country has always been one with open arms for those who needed to seek refuge and opportunities, this time it’s unfortunately our people desperately looking for safety. Not only there are more Venezuelans abroad than ever before, but we are now in the responsibility of perpetuating our culture and share it with the world and one way to do it is through our food.
