A x-caboquinho is a sandwich consisting of tucumã shavings, queijo coalho, and fried plantain between a sliced buttered pão francês. It is typical to the Brazilian state of Amazonas and is officially recognized as an intangible cultural heritage [pt] of the state capital of Manaus.[1][2]

The sandwich originated in Parintins and was popularized in Manuas by Escola Técnica Federal do Amazonas students from Parintins in the 1960s.[3]
