A nice little find in a town that often seems lacking in this sort of thing. It's a small (maybe 10 tables) little Latin American pollo asado place on 29. They've got one of those charcoal rotisserie ovens imported from Peru. Chicken was great, moist and well seasoned. I enjoyed the sides as well: nice saffron rice, excellent fried yuca and plaintains, although I meant to ask if they had tostones, which I prefer if I'm eating plantains, and are good with hot sauce. Other sides looked really good-they have elotes, and they had a side called choripapas which was chorizo, french fries, and other goodies mixed together that sounded great.
