2023 Rotisserie Chicken

Brazas BBQ Chicken

Who would have thought the search for the city’s best Peruvian-style rotisserie chicken would end at a former Primo Hoagies on South Street? But that’s exactly where you gotta go — to chef-owner Juan Placencia’s celebration of Peruvian party food in general and pollo a la brasa in particular. Brined for 48 hours, marinated in chili, garlic and vinegar, then spit-roasted until they’re tender and juicy all the way to the bone, his birds are a marvel.
