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.

The key ingredient for the popular Peruvian Butifarra sandwich is the typical "jamon del país", a special Peruvian country-style ham made by boiling a boned pork leg in a flavorful broth. And while the quality of the ham makes a good Butifarra, the rest seems rather unexciting. But don't be deceived. The combination of a crispy bun filled with the flavorful ham and topped with Peru's typical Salsa Criolla, is surely simple, but absolutely delicious and typical Peruvian.
