Another Shuco Hot Dog Por Favor

Another Shuco Por Favor

Next time you are strolling around Antigua Guatemala and you come across street vending carts, like the ones you see above, you’ll know you can order a Chevere hot dog or the world-famous-wikipedia-entry Guatemalan shuco hot dog.

Can you tell me what’s the difference between a chevere hot dog and a shuco hot dog? He or she who can tell the difference before anybody else will receive a shuco photo in the mail.

Let the games begin.

While we wait for the comments and feedback, please, let me have another chevere por favor. 😉

    pues I believe it has to do with 1)the bread (pirujo vs. hot dog bun) and/or 2)the guacamol.

    If I win you get the shucos next time, if you win I’ll get them… but you’ll have to come to la capirucha and we’ll get them in front of my beloved Liceo!

  • Basically, the difference between a shuco and a chevere resides in the guacamol, the bread and specially the meat, actually you can ask for a shuco with a different kind of meats, from the traditional “salchicha” to “churrasquito meat”, also the condiments are very important, in the “chevere” you have a traditional selection of ketchup, mustard, spicy sauce, but whit the “shucos” you can also ask for “chimichurri” or “chirmol (sometimes also spicy)”

    Have a good time and don’t eat so much xD.

    A Chevere or a Hot dog, are so different from a Shuco… come on, the only reason to compare is the fact that it is a hot dog bread… but the rest is jsut completely different… the original shuco doesn’t have any Ketchup, for once… I love shucos, I’ve eaten there whre this picture was taken… I want one now! but it just doesn’t taste the same as if you buy them on the street… they need to be a bit “shucos” 🙂

    Go and have a Shuco at El Liceo and see the difference… the bread is more like a sour dough, still hot-dog shaped. It has Coleslaw and mayo and mustard, no ketchup and of course, the lovely and tasty Guacamol!

  • Which one results in the Guate variant of Montezuma’s Revenge? I’ve not let the kids eat one yet for fear of running out of TP at the house.

    Ok, here’s my 2 cents..
    A shuco is kinda like a hot dog in the sense that it started as a variation of a hot dog. The shuco nowadays can be a hot dog, sausage, carne asada. Also the guacamole has to be watered down, regular guacamole would be too strong for it, same rule applies to the mustart, mayo and ketchup. the stuff they put on top is not coleslaw, it’s just boiled shredded cabbage, nothing added to it.

  • You guys are getting close to the right answer, but it still room to make the difference clearer.

    Can anybody out there give us the right answers? Anybody?

    Adicionalmente a lo que se ha dicho, el pan se tiene que tostar, el repollo hervido

  • Come on guys and gals, do I have to give the right answer myself?

    Have you live long enough outside of Guatemala that you have forgotten the difference between shucos and cheveres?

    Next, you’re going to tell me like Manolo, ¿quee serr esso de atole blanco? 😉

    shuco is more greasy real meat on traditional bread, where as chevre is just a good hot dog.
