BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — Don Shuco House, as far as I know, is the first restaurant to bring shucos, Guatemalan-style sandwiches, to the city. It’s a worthy addition to our food scene.
A traditional shuco is filled with chopped hot dogs, cabbage and red onion and slathered with ketchup, mustard and mayo. The bottom half of the roll gets a healthy smear of guacamole. You can get your shuco with chorizo, chicken or carne asada, but the hot dog version is pretty great.
There’s no way to eat a shuco with finesse; grab hold and keep at it as condiments ooze out the side and bits of cabbage tumble onto your plate. This is grab and go food in Guatemala, a quick bite as you head to your next destination.
Don Shuco House is located on H Street near California Avenue in a space that seems to house a new restaurant every other year. I hope they buck that trend.
