Chivito: Uruguay’s Massive Sandwich

On the shore of Colonia del Sacramento, I ate a sandwich bigger than what I could bite into. The delicious massive sandwich had bacon, ham, olives, a thin filet steak, mushrooms, onions, eggs, mozzarella cheese, and mayonnaise. As Uruguay’s national sandwich, it’s called the Chivito. The origin of the Chivito comes from Punta del Este in Uruguay and has a story behind it.

It was filling with a gratifying taste.

It can get messy…

It tastes better than it looks, I promise. Horrible photography.
