4 - 27 reviews

We ordered the Peruano and Chicken Croissant sandwiches which were excellent. Peruano had a bit spice, good amount of meat and was quite satisfactory. Chicken croissant had excellent texture with celery and walnut. We will come back and bring our friends. A gem in the Drake neighborhood.

Fun casual spot with really killer whole chicken. I would recommend the dark over the white - the dark meat was really moist, while the white was flavorful, but dry. Best fried yucca I’ve ever had. We’ll be back!

It was our first visit, but we'll be back! We got a whole roast chicken, and it was delicious. It was flavorful and juicy, and all of the sauces that accompanied it were excellent. We had a house salad and fries as a side, and they were both very good too. The sauces are also perfect for dipping your fries. Although full, we grabbed a couple desserts to go - a lemon cheesecake, and a cinnamon/caramel custard. Both were wonderful, but the caramel one was fantastic...familiar flavors, full review
