About La Chiva
La Chiva wheels around authentic Colombian cuisine to Denver in a colorful food truck that keeps with tradition. We're talking really, really traditional. Even the name is a reference to buses in Colombia, translated to "goat" for traveling mountainous regions and delivering the goods. See the connection here? Colorado's got mountains, and La Chiva works hard to deliver good eats to the mile high city.
Chef Jorge Aguirre spent years working, and with an early retirement, decided to pursue his real passion in cooking. His dream was to bring the exotic spices and hearty flavors of Colombian cuisine to Denver, and he succeeded. From empanadas to tamales to arepas and paella, each dish is hand crafted and bursting with regional flavor. Track down La Chiva to see why it's become a local favorite, or have Chef Jorge cater your next event. You'll be transported to Bogota in no time.
Colombian Pork Tamal - pork ribs slowly cooked and combined with vegetables and corn maza, traditionally wrapped in banana leaves and topped with the chef's signature cilantro-mint pesto. Words cannot describe how delicious this is. You'll just have to taste it yourself.
