For awhile now, I've been hearing from friends about how good Pollo a la Brasa's Peruvian Chicken was. Though it took awhile, I finally made it there with said friends. Now if you're looking for fancy, this isn't the place. Think hole in the wall dining and you've hit the mark.
However, fancy doesn't always equate good food and Pollo a la Brasa is one example of that. While there, you may want to order the Chicha Morada, the Peruvian purple corn drink. I found this version a little too sweet, but the melting ice watered it down to my preference.
With the chicken, you have a choice of sides that includes black beans, rice or French Fries. The black beans were a choice by some in the group.
I was in the mood for French Fries, so that's what I went for. As for the chicken itself, Wow! The chicken had crispy skin and took on some woodsy flavors from being cooked in a wood-fired oven. The meat was juicy and succulent and that included the chicken breast. Simply, the chicken was fantastic. Now if only there was a Pollo a la Brasa closer to me. Oh well.
