You’re probably thinking that it’s smart to get the chicken at Machu Chicken, and you’re right (of course you are, you’re always right). It’s grilled Peruvian style on charcoal, and the result is moist, crispy, and nearly perfect. They’ve got other good things on the menu, too, like the empanadas, but check off their specialty first.
