Peruvian Fast Food Review – The Best Peruvian Sandwiches at La lucha Sanguchería Criolla in Lima, Peru Video Transcript:

it is lunchtime here in Lima. Yep. And today we are going to take you to La Lucha Sanguchería Criolla. We’ve been here before. We have but different location. We’ve been noticing there is more branches around Lima. And so we’re going to be visiting a location we’ve never been to before. Ordering a whole bunch of sandwiches and maybe some fries and good drinks.

Sam and I have gotten three different sandwiches, two drinks and some special fries so it is quite a bit of food. We’ve just placed the order. They gave us a number. They are going to call us up.

Drinks have arrived. I ended up getting uh Lucuma cremosa. Yes. Which is basically a bit like a lucuma milkshake.

This is my drink right here. I got La Lucha Chicha de la Lucha. And apparently this is a special recipe. It is the restaurant’s own creation. Oh wow. So it has a few secret ingredients obviously not listed on the menu but let’s try it. I know the main ingredient is purple corn like in Chicha Morada.

We’re going to start with the classic. The chicharron. I’m just going to grab my half. Oh look at that. I like that they’ve cut them in half for us. So this is perfect for chaving. Beautiful! For sharing!

For sharing. They must have known we like to share. So chicharron this is the crispy pork. This is really good. And it comes with camote which is sweet potatoes and you also have your red onions. That is right. We’ll see if there is anything else in there. Oh and maybe cilantro.

Time for the second sandwich. Yeah, it sure is. This one is pollo a la leña. It is basically you’ve got your chicken, you’ve got your onions and you’ve got your bread. So yeah and I’m going to dip it into the aji sauce. The spicy sauce.

And a la leña it basically means that it has been cooked on a wood burning fire.

Moving on to the third and final sandwich. The third sandwich. Let me read this one off of the menu. This one is lomo fino.With eram edam cheese and caramelized onions. So what is that basically in English?

Oh my gosh edam cheese. I don’t know. But check that out. That is super cheesy. Lomo is beef.

Aside from sandwiches let’s not forget we ordered fries. Alright so I’m going to dig into the fries. I’m going to try two. Different sauces. One in ketchup one dunked in aji.

They are Papas Fritas Huayro Las Mejores de Peru. Apparently these are the best potatoes. Wow. In Peru.

Anyways in terms of price point that came to 73 Soles which was $22 US dollars. That was total so basically $11 US dollars per person.

This is part of our Travel in Peru video series showcasing Peruvian food, Peruvian culture and Peruvian cuisine.

Amir Reza Sadaghiani says:

Ah Audrey, I had my four wisdom teeth pulled some 13 yrs ago, the whole experience was really something……..I hope your experience will be better 🙂 as for the video, another excellent clip, and those sandwiches look amazing

FitAngie says:

Those sandwiches look heavenly delicious! Oh wow yum

Amir Reza Sadaghiani says:

As for starchy-ness of potatoes in Peru, what do you expect, correct me if I wrong, potatoes come from North/South America so they have the right to be a little bit starchier than elsewhere 🙂

rotitelor says:

Was the bread crusty? I thought I heard a crunch when you bit into it. BTW, I’m assuming it’s cheaper to pull wisdom teeth in Peru instead of Canada if Audrey is doing it there?

vldbzh says:
