Barros Luco’s Larger Sandwiches are a Big Improvement
I love Chilean food so much, I was willing to travel out of bounds to 52nd and 2nd for sandwiches at Barros Luco. And even though I loved the food on my first visit, I was a little disappointed by the size of their chacareros (which came in a small styrofoam container.) Flash forward to three weeks ago, Barros Luco announced that they had made their sandwiches bigger… and even though this was confirmed by a number of Midtown Lunchers in the forums, at the end of last week I had to go check it out for myself. Uh… you know… for work purposes. It’s a tough job, but it had to be done.
The sandwich came wrapped in tin foil, rather than those tiny containers. Already a good sign.
And looks were not deceiving… the sandwich is definitely bigger. It’s still not as big as the sandwich I had in Chile, but it’s big enough. And a huge improvement over the old sandwich. As for the taste… still good (provided you like avocado and string beans on your steak sandwich… and lord knows I do!)
