Pollo Cabana?s smaller menu allowed the chefs to perfect their rotisserie-style Peruvian chicken. They first marinate the poultry in a house blend, and then cook them on a spit over a bed of charcoal. And with a name dedicated to pollo, it is no wonder that their signature chicken is found in nearly every dish. Chickens are served whole or cut into pieces in platters, and chefs pair them with Latin-influenced sides, including fried yucca, fried plantains, and rice and beans. Chicken also serves as the main protein in wraps flavored with signature aji amarillo chili-pepper sauce, salads drizzled with jalape?o0lime dressing, and quesadillas. And the chefs can supersize platters for catered gatherings celebrating birthdays, anniversaries, or the first time you ate at Pollo Cabana.
