Peruvian “Pollerias”, Roasted Chicken with a Local Touch.

One of the peruvian’s basic meals is the “Pollo a la Brasa” a suculent , high caloric, must-try dish, the secret is in the sauce used to marinate the chicken before is cooked rotisserie style… crunchy outside and juicy inside…just perfect!


Pollerias, name given to the restaurants specializend in preparing roast chicken, are a great succes in Peru, where 8000 new Pollerias are opened every year. But chicken is not the only thing offered there, french frites (papas fritas) and a fresh salad of lettuce, carrots, cucumber, beet and avocado are part of the combo.


If you want to have a true local experience don’t forget to ask for the chili paste (the waiter will bring a Little bowl with a creamy sauce usually quite “picante” or spicy, add few drops to your plate first) and order an Inka Kola, the local soda.


We take very seriourly our love for pollo a la brasa, so seriously that we celebrate the national day of this famous dish every third sunday of july, best national holyday ever.


Hope you take the chance of trying this local delicacy. Enjoy.
