A taste of Venezuela comes to Aberdeen


The team at Foodstory in Aberdeen’s Thistle Street have announced that their upstairs space is now home to La Tiendi Del Sabor, a new Venezuelan restaurant and bar. The name, which means ‘The Little Flavour Store’, has a menu of plant-based and vegetarian dishes that they say are ““fresh, tasty and melt in the mouth.”

The restaurant is collaboration between the café and the Diotaiuti family who have been in the UK for 12 years and who have previously had a food truck in Brixton Market in London. The family are all working at the restaurant and include father, mother and daughter team, Carmelo, Glenda, and Camilla.

Camilla told DRAM, “My dad had visited Scotland for a holiday and loved the people here, so we moved up three years ago, after living in London for nine years. This is the first restaurant we have done in Aberdeen. It’s going well, our customers have been loving the food like our Cachapas and Empanadas.

“My dad makes all the vegan beef, chorizo and cheese himself, so it’s all natural and homemade. The food is traditionally Venezuelan plus my dad and I both sing in the restaurant as well, so it’s a real experience for our customers.”
