Already one of our favorite carts, Polli-Tico specializes in pollo a la brasa, a traditional Peruvian charbroiled chicken dish, where the fowl is slow-cooked in a rotisserie oven that the two brothers imported from Peru, then served with your choice of two sides: fried yuca, beans and rice, fries, salad, or cole slaw. With the city’s sudden interest in rotisserie chicken they do often sell out so make sure to get there early!
Brentwood - Darlington
Fresh, flavorful Mexican food is starting to become as synonymous with 82nd Ave as top-notch, hole-in-the-wall Asian cuisine. One of the newest additions to the scene is El Fogón, a cart that’s open almost all day (10am-9pm) and serves $1 tacos and $5 burritos and quesadillas. We haven’t ventured into their soup options yet but will definitely be going back for the menudo next time we’re feeling under the weather.
