Best known as the wood-roasted chicken spot that you can smell from a quarter-mile away, Pollo A La Brasa Vermont is the older sibling of the extremely popular Peruvian-style chicken spot in Koreatown, Pollo A La Brasa Western. The food here is just as good, if not better, and much like that location, there's a huge glass wall in the kitchen, where you can watch hundreds of golden chickens slowly roasting on spits. Quarter, half, or whole birds—which come with sides like fries, beans, or salad—are every bit as salty and juicy as you want the rotisserie chicken to be. If you're dining in, you may have to borrow a bottle of the spicy green aji sauce from the table next to you, but it's what you should be smothering your chicken in anyway.
