Chicken Latino Restaurant Review:

This must-stop Strip District spot, in a blink-and-you'll-miss-it position, is rooted in Peruvian culture and tastes. Peru-born owner Shelbin Santos and her assorted friends and relatives welcome diners warmly and serve Peruvian rotisserie chicken. Find fried yuca, potatoes and plantain, as well as black beans and coleslaw. All is made in-house. The menu offers Mexican items (quesadillas, burritos) plus Americanized fare (burgers and chicken sandwiches). Options expand to specials, such as ceviche or slow-roasted pork. Desserts (tres leches cake, flan or rice pudding), colas and juices are authentically cloying. Eat in, take out or take advantage of the delivery option.
