Smokin’ Peruvian Chicken

The Peruvian chicken at Fonzie’s is “[o]ne of the best rotisserie chickens I’ve ever had: lemony, dripping with juice, well-spiced and with the best fries—crisp and from Peruvian potatoes,” says rccola. It reportedly holds its own against the birds of Lima, but you definitely don’t want to do takeout: It would ruin the texture of the fries, and probably the chicken skin. Plus, you gotta check out the genuinely Peruvian atmosphere.

Also at Fonzie’s: salchipapa (sliced hot dog over french fries), lúcuma (a tropical fruit) ice cream, and Peruvian-style alfajores.
