Tucked away great food

Excellent take on the rotisserie chicken. Over charcoal. .beans are exceptional, sauces add zing especially the green sauce it is spicy! Good value.

You wouldn't just stumble upon this place, but it's worth making the trip. Very well priced Peruvian food. I particularly enjoyed the sweet plantains and the Arroz Chaufa.

I have been to this small little place plenty of times since they open up and let me tell you, they have some good chicken...the plantains, with the black beans or tostones and that yellow sauce... you will wanna lick your fingers.
