The Chimichurri burger (usually called "Chimi burger", "Dominican burger", or simply "chimi") is a traditional snack dish (sandwich) served in the Dominican Republic.

It is made from ground pork or beef, which is sliced, grilled and served on a pan de agua (literally "water bread") and garnished with chopped cabbage. Salsa golf is also added.[1] This dish is made throughout the Dominican Republic and is usually sold on street stands.[1] Each vendor has their own recipe; flavors and ingredients can substantially vary the texture and taste of the chimichurris.[citation needed]

Outside the Dominican Republic[edit]

Chimichurris are popularly sold out of food trucks in the Dominican Republic and in various areas of the United States.[2] Such areas include: Washington Heights, Manhattan, New York; Corona, Queens, New York; Brooklyn, New York; Paterson, New Jersey; the Allapattah area of Miami, Florida; East and South Orlando, Florida; Lawrence, Massachusetts; north of San Antonio, Texas; and in Providence, Rhode Island.[3]
