Barros Luco Sandwich, a Chilean Speciality

Bacán Café Vientiane - Barros Luco Sandwich

Barros Luco is a simple Chilean sandwich that includes beef, topped with melted cheese, and served inside various kind of bread, usually in a bun, Marraqueta or Pan Amasado. Nowadays it is also served with chicken and pork. And the name is in honor of Ramón Barros Luco, former president of Chile (1910-1915) who was a client at Confitería Torres where he would always order this treat made especially for him.

Even though it is unclear whether it originated in the restaurant of the Chilean National Congress or the Confitería Torres, to this day Barros Luco remains as one of the most popular sandwich varieties in Chile. It is always served hot and can be found on the menus of many Chilean restaurants.
