Our Signature Dish
THE HISTORY OF THIS
The leyend tell us that it was created in 1944.
Antonio Carbonaro ran a bar on the peninsula of top summer resort Punta del Este.
One day a customer from the mountains of Argentina was on her way back home and wanted to order something quick. So she asked for baby goat (chivito).
The kitchen was closed but Antonio was eager to please. He buttered a bread roll and made a sandwich with a slice of ham on a quarter-pound slice of steak. The lady loved it and he baptised the sandwich a chivito.
Carbonaro went on to sell a thousand chivitos a day. Over time more ingredients were added including cheese, tomato, lettuce, ham, bacon, egg and olives.
In FUEGO, we offer a lot of options, but also a special one: a delicious tradicional uruguayan steak sandwich layered with the best: cheese, bacon, lettuce, tomato, olives, eggs and mayo.
