Perhaps the best to-go chicken in the region—okay, in the world—is found at this Peruvian café. The birds are marinated in citrus juice, garlic and chiles and spit-roasted over a wood fire until crisp-skinned and incredibly juicy. Pair them with the homemade French fries (the Peruvians know their potatoes), and you will be deliriously happy. Eat in or take out.
