Typical Peruvian Sandwiches

We can find a sandwich 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 many 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.
