La Chiva Top 100

La Chiva got its start as a food truck in 2015 and moved into its original brick-and-mortar location on South Broadway in 2017. In November 2020, when the space across the street became available, owner and native Colombian Jorge Aguirre relocated his operation, gaining double the seating, an upstairs area and a large back patio. The menu is small, but the portions of traditional Colombian fare are generous — especially the heaping Picada platter for two.
