Typical Peruvian Sandwiches

Typical Peruvian Sandwiches

A sandwich can be found around the world – but a sanguche (or sanguich, sanduche, sanduich) is typical Peruvian. No doubt, sanguches are an everyday, but loved part of the Peruvian gastronomy. Peruvians have a sandwich for breakfast, lunch or dinner, in between, before going out or at the end of a long night, actually any time. A Peruvian sandwich comes in countless shapes and flavors, seems to be deceptively simple, but always tastes of Peru.

The combination of crispy and juicy local ingredients with Peruvian salsas and flavors is just sensational and makes a Peruvian sandwich so special. So stop at one of the numerous sangucherias when you are in Peru and have a typical Peruvian sandwich; surely an unforgettable experience of the Peruvian cuisine you really shouldn't miss.

Sanguche de Chicharron

The Chicharrón Sandwich is Lima's number one sanguche. Chicharrón, chunks of fried pork shoulder or pork belly boiled in a flavorful broth accompanied with camote is a popular breakfast treat. Even though the Chicharrón Sandwich is as well a favored breakfast food it's eaten all day long.

 
 
Butifarra

When talking about Butifarra surely Catalonia's famous sausage comes to mind first. But a Butifarra is also Peru's probably most traditional sandwich. Presumably first sold during bullfights in early Republican Lima, today Butifarras are part of the culinary culture and sold in every sangucheria and from food carts all over the city.
