San Chick, Pollo in Seven Corners - Report

Steve | Aug 5, 201706:41 PM

After Peruvian Chicken and Steak closed down, it took a while for the next venture to fill this space, and along comes yet another Peruvian rotisserie chicken vendor, San Chick. One of their features is a chicken sandwich, hence the name. In addition, they have a nice list of Peruvian specialties.

I entered about 10 minutes to 2pm on Saturday, and I saw there was a full rotisserie of chicken that looked about ready to come off the spits. A guy said that they'd be ready in 10 minutes, so I decided to go for a stroll and come back.

When I got back, a younger gentleman said that they let the birds rest for 10 minutes before cutting into them, or they 'fall apart.,' though he said that it doesn't really matter when you come in because they always have freshly cooked chicken at the ready. Hmmmm...

the chicken I was served was about as hot, fresh, and juicy as you can get. The inside was dripping juicy. As a plus, the skin had a nice thick bark to it. Impressive. I would say that it is at least on par with Crisp and Juicy and one of the best I've ever had. Personally I think timing is everything.
