Guatemalan Cuisine: Pirujos antigüeños

Pirujos antigüeños en

This sandwich is called Pirujo and it takes its name from the bread’s name. Pirujos and shucos are the two native sandwiches from Guatemala. Please follow the shuco link to see some of the largest sandwiches around.

This pirujo sandwich comes with guacamol(e), lettuce, tomato, onion, cheese and beef or chicken, your choice, along with a clear soup or chicken stock (consommé), chopped onions, chopped tomatoes and chile sauce and jamaica cold tea. The total price for this lunch is Q18 (US$2.35) at Internet Cafe and it is enough for two.

With this simple sandwich we end the second food series. Bon appetite! and, please, make sure you hide the scale.

    This looks good. It looks like a lot for one person though.

    Another sandwich that has everything, but I agree, half of that would do me.

    By the way, Rudy, your postcard arrived today. Thanks!
