The word refers to the sandwich as well as to the roll it is typically served on, a bread roll covered with sesame seeds. The bread is made with egg, and resembles brioche. Additionally, the ingredients usually are restricted to sliced avocado, meat, white cheese, onions, the herb pápalo and red sauce (salsa roja).
