La Cayejera – Sevilla’s First Foodtruck

2014 June 29

la cayejera

Thanks to Cayetano Gómez, the slightly mad (in a good way!) creative force behind the quirkily kitsch Puratasca in Triana, Sevilla now has its first food truck. It’s been Cayetano’s dream – obsession? – for some time now to bring street food culture to the streets of Sevilla. Many may ask why bother as there are bars on pretty much every street and street corner as it is… but I think this idea has wheels (sorry!) if only to offer actual street-style food to the people of Sevilla.

La Cayejera (a play on words: Cayetano/Callejera) is a third-hand purchase that has been fitted out with a gas kitchen, and electrics that run off a separate generator. It’s an eye-catching bright blue truck festooned with cute catch phrases and also necessary info about what the concept is all about. There are 12 locations around Sevilla that will be chosen weekly, for either lunch or dinner, and these will be announced at the beginning of each week on the La Cayejera Facebook page and on Twitter. As well as the weekly schedule, La Cayejera is also available for private parties and events, which I think is a fantastic idea and one that is going to become very successful.

Check the La Cayejera FB Page for daily schedules and locations. On Twitter: @lacayejera

    Dear Rafa or Cayetano. First congratulations with your beautiful “foodtruck”.
    I hope everything is going well with the business.
    We also wants to start with a foodtruck in the region of Alicante/ Elche.
    Until now I couldn’t find the official rules. What do you have to do to get permission to sell food in a foodtruck. Do you need permission in every village or city where you want to sell food ?

    I hope you can help me with information about these things.
    Thanking you in advance,

    John Wijffels
