Uruguayan Steak Sandwiches
Travel on a journey to the streets of Colonia with El Chivi’s delicious steak sandwich beasts.
Owner Marty Eppel grew up eating Chivitos at his grandparents place most weekends, and never imagined that years later he would be bringing a little bit of Uruguay to the streets of Melbourne alongside his wife Anna.
“Since my family relocated in the 70's we have never seen anywhere try and recreate these amazing steak sandwiches!”
Inspired by the rustic houses in Colonia, El Chivi creates an authentic atmosphere so that it’s not only your tastebuds that are transported to a different country.
“Our patrons love the El Suarez, it’s one of our biggest sandwiches with added jalapenos and our hot sauce, so it has a bit of bite to it!”
Anna and Marty enjoy the lifestyle of travelling around to different events, where every day brings something new.
“It was quite funny when we were standing inside our van at the Berwick Food Truck Carnival and a stampede of people were running towards us to come and order food.”
“We felt like rockstars; it was like our ‘fans’ were running down to the front of our stage!”
