The Lomito is perhaps as common as the burger in Argentina. What makes Lomito special is the Argentinian beef used to make it. Thin cuts of filet mignon or eye fillet steak cooked to perfection, loaded up with all sorts of condiments, and then topped with a fried egg create a flavor explosion in anybody’s mouth.
But what makes this sandwich even more special is the amazing bread and the Argentinian spices that add that distinct flavor. You can undoubtedly get a Lomito sandwich at a restaurant, but the ones made in a food cart or truck on the side of the street have much more of a homemade taste. That is why at Criosho we strive to pack our catering menus with rich flavors that make Argentinian foods so tasty.
South America is known for infusing exotic flavors into its meats. From carne asada or chorizo and more, every bite will make your taste buds ask for more. Argentina is in a class of its own when it comes to preparing its meats and Lomito is the crown jewel of fast food with a flavor twist.
There are countless recipes online for Lomito. However, if you really want the authentic experience, you need to walk the streets of Argentina and order one from a food truck or a small sandwich shop. Can’t go to Argentina?
