Barros Luco is a popular hot sandwich in Chile that includes beef and melted cheese in one of several types of bread. The sandwich is named after Chilean president Ramón Barros Luco, and was coined in the restaurant of the National Congress of Chile, where president Barros Luco always asked for this sandwich. Other sources point to Confitería Torres as the place where the sandwich was created.
The meat cuts used for this sandwich are the same that are used for the churrasco, another popular Chilean sandwich. Several varieties of bread are used in this sandwich: Pan de frica, pan amasado, marraqueta and sliced white bread are popular. The president's cousin, senator Barros Jarpa asked instead for sandwiches with ham and cheese, so these sandwiches started to be called Barros Jarpa.
