Antigua Sandwich Week: Guatemalan Torito Burger

Rudy Giron: Food Photography &emdash; Torito Hamburger

Here’s your illustrated Guatemalan Spanish word of the day: Hamburguesa or burger.

I guess a hamburger is a kind of sandwich right. By the way, we use the word sandwich quite often in Spanish, although the proper word should be emparedado. In Guatemala, we often just call them panes, such pan con pollo or pan con chille relleno.

This huge hamburger comes with a half pound patty, ham, bacon, an egg, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, and fried potatoes. It will set you back $10 at Van Goth Café.

Who wants to try a “Torito” hamburger, anyone, anyone?
