Watch this great video to find out why Anthony Bourdain says the best sandwich in the world is in Uruguay.
“The first thing I need to talk about is the chivito, because it’s the best sandwich I’ve tasted in my life, including the venerated & thousand times described pastrami sandwich of New York and the mortadella and cheese sandwich from the market of Sao Paulo, Brazil. Really, the chivito is too good to be true; it’s almost impossible to eat because of how tall it is. Moreover, the idea of putting together beef, bacon, ham and cheese in the same bite, without counting all the other things it contains, is incredible. What’s more, in the US you could be arrested for daring to eat something like this. For me, any country that embraces this as its national sandwich is great!”
While I haven’t travelled as extensively as Anthony, I love chivitos more than any other sandwich or hamburguer and consider myself lucky to be able to order a chivito and having it delivered to my office or home.
