La Chiva knows what they're doing—and they know they do it well. The mom-and-pop-run Colombian restaurant and food truck serves up traditional, hearty, and above all, delicious fare to an enthusiastic and dedicated customer base that returns again and again for the cheap and high-quality food produced by this incredible spot. You can spot their colorful truck from a mile away, which is good, because you want to be one of the first in line. And believe us—there's sure to be a line.
Owner and chef Jorge Aguirre came out of an early retirement to pursue his passion with La Chiva, and Denver couldn't be more grateful that he did. With a large menu spanning an extensive amount of traditional and authentic Colombian cuisine, it's no surprise that there's quite a fanbase for this excellent spot. If you're looking for something a little larger-scale, you can also book La Chiva for private events; Chef Jorge is available not only with the truck, but as a caterer as well, offering both full-service and drop-off options. Maybe a trip to Bogota isn't in your books, but you don't need airfare—just taste a dish at La Chiva, and suddenly, you're there.
