Here at the Chivanada Food Truck we were homesick for the authentic flavors of our native Cartagena. So we set out to make Crispy, Cheesy and Meaty Empanadas even better than the ones we grew up with! Welcome to Chivanada, an Empanada truck bringing the best of Colombia to Nashville. We're a party on wheels, with salsa music, good food, imported drinks, and an overly-caffeinated crew. We are known for quick service, quality, and efficient and fun Catering! Book us here.

Food is always fresh, and I love that the whole menu is gluten free

They got our order perfect and food was delicious. My only advice is to not combine 2 different types of empanadas in the same box. We had cut them open to know which 2 were lentils and which 2 were vegan/potato when placed in the same box. Otherwise all was awesome!

All of it. Everything was cooked, seasoned, etc perfectly. We love this cuisine and you knocked it out of the park.

. Oh goodness, my destination was only 10 minutes from the truck and I had already eaten half of my food before I got to it🫣.

Food is excellent, but they need to serve the empanadas with more sauce. I even requested more sauce in the notes section, but there was no extra sauce in the box.

CHIVANDA is my favorite food truck. The lentil empanadas are SO good. It's always exciting when they come. :)
