One measure of the market penetration of pollo a la brasais that when you say you’re craving chicken, many now think you’re referring to the Peruvian kind—marinated in a mixture that includes
lime juice and achiote, then spit-roasted. We like these operations for their turnover: Countermen are constantly pulling fresh birds and hacking them into glorious, juice-dripping parts.
