The chivito, a Uruguayan sandwich, is often referred to as "a heart attack on a plate." El Rey's basic chivito Canadiense contains steak, ham, cheese, fried eggs, roasted red peppers, tomato, lettuce, and mayonnaise. It's served between two halves of a big baguette. To counteract any possible health-food taint from the lettuce and tomatoes, the sandwich comes with a hefty order of wonderfully greasy French fries. Other popular items here are huge platters of fried eggs and ham on top of fries, and the Milanesa Napolitana "Rey": a breaded, deep-fried steak with ham, cheese, and fried eggs, all atop fries. Frankly, a cholesterol overload never tasted so good.
