Fellow hounds:The search for the best fried yuca at a peruvian chicken place has ended forever. The yuca at Guapo's on Rte 28 in Manassas is beyond belief. It's the '27 Yankees of fried yuca. Incredibly crunchy on the outside, melt-in-your-mouth soft on the inside. Not in the least bit stringy, starchy, dried-out or otherwise yucky (pun intended). Simply the best around.
We've had yuca from many, many places and after one bite we knew this yuca was different.
N.B. The chicken at Guapo's is ok, but you can do better on that front. But, Guapo's has a much broader menu than most chicken joints, so you can order other stuff to accompany your yuca. Or just get ten orders of yuca.
