Pepito Sandwich

The pepito is a Venezuelan street food favorite: a beef (or chicken) sandwich, drenched with sauces and condiments. The beef is seasoned with worcestershire sauce (salsa negra) and garlic. The bread is a large soft hoagie-like roll, and the condiments typically include lettuce, tomato, and many sauces, such as guasacaca, an avocado relish, BBQ sauce, ketchup, mayo, mustard, etc... The whole thing is topped off with crispy potato sticks. When you buy a pepito from a street vendor, there are usually many sauces to choose from and you can customize your order.
