Just to clarify, the sandwich pirujo takes its name from the pirujo bread, which is a sort of elongated French roll. On the other hand, shucos is the name giving to the Guatemalan hotdog. Both sandwiches come with guacamol, yes without the ‘e’, a sauce made with avocados.
Follow the links for pirujos and shucos if you want to learn about these Guatemalan sandwiches, which you make at home, your home, if you know how. Right?
Domain name side note: Guatemalans find the spelling of domain names enchanting and they use them as the name for their companies even though they do not own or even plan to own the actual domain name. For instance, the sign above for an internet cafe has the logo of Roy dot com, which is not by any means the domain name for that cyber cafe.
