Classic Peruvian Food – Eating Pollo a la Brasa at Pardos Chicken in Lima, Peru Travel Video Transcript:

Another day another food video here from Lima, Peru. This time it is something exciting because we’ve never made a food featuring a very famous dish here called Pollo a la brasa. Yeah. Which is basically rotisserie chicken. So we’ve gone by this restaurant it is a chain called Pardos Chicken and apparently they specialize in this dish so we’re going to head there and we’ve come to Larcomar one of our favorite malls to come and hang out here. Yeah. With the beautiful views. So many good restaurants here. We’ve located Pardos (Polleria Pardos) and we’re going to order that special dish along with some other things here today.

We both got Chicha Morada but two different versions. I went with the classic you know your purple corn juice. Peruvian purple corn juice.

The first side dish has come and this is called rejitas de camote. Basically these are sweet potato crinkle chips.

The first side dish has come and this is called rejitas de camote. Basically these are sweet potato crinkle chips.

We got the medium sized one. This is the half chicken. You can get a quarter and you can also get a full one so this is the medium sized one and it is gigantic. It comes with I think some golden yellow potatoes as well.

I’m just going to go in for the pollo a la brasa. Oh la lah. Wow that looks so juicy.

And now to try the golden potatoes. Yes. So you can tell they are really crispy on the outside here. You can see here. Looks like very fibrous potatoes.

My dish has also arrived and I got the Chicharrón de Pollo. I got a small portion just with 4 pieces. And basically it is chicken. Yep. Kind of like covered in a batter and then deep-fried. Right. And it comes with two pieces of white corn and yellow potato.

We could choose the cooked salad um which is kind of like steamed vegetables. Right. So this one is carrots, green beans and beetroot. Yeah, getting our veggies in with our meat and carbs. It is always a good thing.

That is another thing that you have in almost every Peruvian meal. They somehow find a way to get potatoes in there too. Potatoes, rice. Potatoes, rice and corn make appearances very frequently.

The size of the merengue on top of this pie is impressive. Is a thing of beauty. That is a very Peruvian way of making the lemon pies here because they are massive.

Like it ended up coming to 81 Soles so that included the two drinks all of the mains and side dishes that you saw plus a dessert at the end. And honestly we could have definitely ordered less. So 20 basically 81 Soles is $25 US dollars.

Hope you guys enjoyed this video. Delicious chicken and if you’re in Lima, Peru definitely try this out. We will see you on the next food video from Lima. Ciao for now.

This is part of our Travel in Peru video series showcasing Peruvian food, Peruvian culture and Peruvian cuisine.
