Village Voice's Description

This “House of Chicken” is one of the premiere Peruvian rotisseries that Queens is famous for, utilitarian places specializing in bargain-priced plates of food so large, you’ll need a friend to finish them. At the heart of the menu is a spice-rubbed roast chicken (some say the spice combination was inspired by Chinese immigrants to the mountain nation) accompanied by a green chile sauce, but roast spare ribs and pork are other estimable specialties. These are available in combinations, all less than $10, along with yellow rice, boiled potatoes, red beans, and salad. Other Peruvian standards such as lomo saltado, fried fish, and South American-style chop suey are also worth checking out.

Tips from foursquare

  • Real Cheap Eats on 11/13/11

    "With bits of roasted pork throughout, the Peruvian-style Chinese fried rice (mixed with lots of green sauce, of course) along with the chicken is the best thing on the menu" ($5.20).

    Splendid green chicken sauce and secret spices to match the perfectly falling-off-the-bone and the skin that stays imperially crisp. Critics' choice for best rotisserie.

    1/4 Chicken and Fried Rice

  • Susan L. on 06/10/13

    Delicious fried rice. Love the green sauce for the chicken, tostones or rice.
