First I will say that the food at La Lena is very good. But for a restaurant in their price range, one typically expects a pleasant dining experience to complement the food. This is not the case at this La Lena location. Loud televisions are stationed throughout the restaurant and there is not one corner for diners wanting conversation and... More

Visited the locale near the Cathedral in Huancayo. It is dirty and ugly from the outside. The oven vent drips with grease. Better inside. Very decent chicken, well cooked and moist. So-so french fries--not crispy at all, more like boiled rather than fried. Not inexpensive for Huancayo, but better quality than other 'pollerias'.

Good location and great pollo a la brasa. I find it slightly too salty but it pairs well with chicha morada. Chicken was very big and served with a lot of chips and a bowl of salad. Great dining experience!

It ovens and broiler at the entrance were enticing. Greeted warmly and service was A-1. We ordered the Lomo Saltado and it was full of flavor and freshness. There were three varied sauces to spice things up and the rice was light, fresh and very distinctive with added corn. It is easy to find next to the Plaza de la... More
