Here, you can get some Peruvian rotisserie chicken from a little storefront suspiciously reminiscent of the nearby El Rey. They’re both tiny, they both have seats in the windows, and they both have indoor neon signs. Both of them are relatively healthy, as well. Here, you can go for a quinoa salad or some lentils, or you can go the rotisserie-chicken route and get it plain or on a sandwich. There aren’t many seats for in-house dining, but the owner is a male model who’s been known to take his shirt off in public. That has nothing to do with seating, but we thought you should know.
