If you go to Caravan Chicken after 5pm, you will probably encounter a line. Get in it. You might be staring at the rotisserie chickens spinning behind the counter for 15 minutes before you can order, but it’ll be worth it. This to-the-point Peruvian spot is the sort of place people who live in Astoria eat at once a week, choosing from several chicken and spare rib combos that start at $11. For $20, you’ll get a whole, succulent chicken with crackly, intensely seasoned skin that we could compose sonnets about. They also have fried rice and other Chino-Latino sides. Most people do takeout, but we recommend grabbing a table in the bright yellow dining area to the side. If you do dine in, you get unlimited access to squeeze bottles of their life-changing green sauce.
