– El Chivi Food Truck –

Specialising in chivitos and flavours of Uruguay


Hola y bienvenido!

El Chivi is Melbourne’s first and only Uruguayan steak sandwich “Chivito food truck”

The chivito “The apex of the sandwich making arts” as quoted by Anthony Bourdain is the unofficial national dish of Uruguay.

Much like fish and chips to the UK, burgers to America, the chivito is to Uruguay and now we bring it to Melbourne to revolutionize the way we eat steak sandwiches.

Established in 2015, El Chivi Food truck uses locally sourced ingredients, quality scotch fillet steak, melting in your mouth and tender to eat, using only the freshest and finest salad and pickled ingredients, layered on freshly baked artisan bread.

All of this is done from our distinctive food truck inspired by the rustic houses of Colonia, Uruguay.

Unique in look and flavours, we offer food truck catering to a range of Melbourne events including music festivals, private events, birthday catering, party catering, wedding catering, engagement party’s, corporate events and more.

Small or large scale events, we love doing what we do and love sharing our passion for food and culture with Victoria.
