Busy, friendly and charming place serving cuban-chinese food. Really tasty roasted chicken, lovely pork chops and chinese veggies. Ask for a recommendations and share the food with your friends. Highly recommended! Perfect with kids and groups/vouples of all ages.

“Peruvian roast chicken is THE dish to have - Pollo de la brasq”
Reviewed January 22, 2012

This is a Peruvian-Chino neighborhood place that makes succulent roast chicken that will knock your socks off. A plate of chicken with rice will cost around $12 - the portions are large and the food is very tasty. The fried bananas make a nice addition to the rice. Highly recommended for a delicious, filling meal that won't break the bank.

“BEST PERUVIAN CHICKEN”
Reviewed November 20, 2011

This is a very busy Spanish and Chinese local restaurant with two locations on the Upper West side.Everyone has their favorite dishes but Pollo A LA Brasa ( Peruvian Special Chicken Whole for $11.50) brings the crowds of locals and people in the know to eagerly wait for a table). Typical diner could include yellow,brown, or white rice and red or black beans, Bok Choy with a sauce, sauteed or steamed($9.95), Roast Pork Chop Suey ($9.95) There is something for everyone on the menu starting with Bar- B-Q Spare Rib appetizer(10.95). I personally like to order the 1/2 Chicken with sweet plantains for $8.75. Request the house mustard as it is extra spicy and they also serve it with a hot sauce.Their menu is a mixture of Chinese and Spanish food. Both locations are opened Monday Thru Sunday 12:00 noon to 12 midnight.It has free delivery between 60thSt-125th St.They also have very reasonably priced lunch specials Monday to Saturday until 4:30pm except holidays.

Peruvian meets chinese. Strange but good experience to taste from Rasted chicken to Chow main in a different style. Great ambience and delicious food

“This upper westside Chinese-Cuban stand-by never fails”
Reviewed November 7, 2011

Flor de Mayo on Broadway and 100th Street has been a stand-by in the neighborhood for decades, with an original sister restaurant on Amsterdam Avenue. The pollo ala brassa is done Peruvian-style on a rotisterie. Served with black beans and yellow rice, with a side of fried plantains, our family never tires of this dish. They are also a decent ceviche soaked in lime and cilantro which I like for lunch with the avocado salad. Ropa vieja is another family favorite, with its smoky tangy BBQ sauce.The waitstaff, some of whom have been there for decades, are polished and efficient. There may be a line for Sunday dinner, but it is worth the wait. They have a broad cocktail menu and icy cold beer in bottles. Finish off your meal with a cafe con leche and order of flan and you will be a happy camper. The prices are very affordable and you are likely to take some home because the portions are generous. Enjoy!
