I'm always a fan of yuca frita too.
What's your knife?  It could be thick for the task taking you off course.
They're chilean sandwiches:    Lomito Palta, a thin cutlet of pork, mashed avocado, tomato, maybe mayo, onion on a roll that's a cross between a bun and ciabatta. Images all lifted from google search.      Barros luco is the same concept but with steak and green beans and cheese.     There's a ham variation that's popular too, barros jarpa   If you can find a chilean restaurant, they'll usually have these on the lunch menu and a few others too.

You know, this just isn't a productive path. So I'm locking this thread.
