Venue Info

The Peruvian style of roasted chicken has spread globally like wildfire (due mostly to its smoky, salty, cumin-laced appeal), only to become the namesake dish in this Sunnyside family-run restaurant. Rack after rack of wines on the exposed brick wall contrast with the gaudy blue and purple lights that shoot from the bar (you can’t take the Queens outta the place, ahrite). The pollo combo stands apart on the menu: a whole spit-roasted chicken (those unable to consume an entire bird can get half or quarter portions), with salad, rice & beans AND french fries. Don't skimp on the addictive green sauce (Aji verde). How many ways can Peruvians fry rice? At least seven here, with shrimp, chicken and several seafood variations. Live music on Saturdays make it a fiesta.
