In the past, if someone mentioned Peruvian food to me my mind would automatically go to Ceviche. Until two weeks ago I had no idea that Peruvian cuisine was just as famous for its rotisserie chicken as it is for Ceviche.
Recently, in Lantana, Florida the well known Peruvian restaurant “Victoria’s” opened up a smaller restaurant in the same plaza that just features rotisserie chicken along with some appetizers. So much for my thought process that all rotisserie chicken is the same. The chicken that I enjoyed there was arguably one of the juiciest, tastiest I have ever had.
I was fortunate enough to enjoy this chicken with my friend who is from Peru. (of course I let him do the ordering) He ordered us a full chicken to split, a salad and a side of fries.
My friend informed that in Peru that combination of food is a classic.
When the chicken came out it was accompanied by 3 different sauces of different taste and spice. They were all equally delicious. One was tastier then the next. I even found myself dipping the french fries in these sauces.
If you are looking for a quick bite to eat without the fast-food taste this little chicken shop is a great bet. Victoria’s prepares this authentic Peruvian dish with as much love and
pride as they do with all their other dishes in their main restaurant on the other side of the strip mall.
