On the plus side, the family-style dinner is a steal. For $36, we got a whole pollo a la brasa, a Peruvian-spiced rotisserie-cooked chicken that put your local grocery store version to shame, both in size and flavor. It also included an eye-popping amount of fries that smelled way too good not to sample on the drive home, plus a lush side salad topped with avocado and creamy cucumber dressing. On the whole, it was a delicious and relatively nutritious (in spite of the fries) meal, for a reasonable price.
As for the problems, we actually ordered the family-style fried chicken (pollo frito), but, instead, they gave us the roasted chicken (pollo a la brasa). Both are offered with the same sides. Also, we ordered the leche de tigre, a ceviche dish with a seasonal white fish (right now, it’s flounder). However, that dish was completely missing from our order — an oversight we didn’t discover until we got home.
