39. Rotisserie Chicken at Pardo's
Pardo's hails from Lima, where they have been doing chicken the Peruvian way since 1986. As the number-one chicken chain in Peru, it was only a matter of time before they expanded to the United States. The Miami location debuted nearly two years ago to wide acclaim. The mouthwatering aroma of rotisserie chicken can be smelled almost a block away from this Coral Gables eatery. Diners know it's the real deal, however, when they walk into the unassuming space and see rows and rows of whole chickens roasting on the back wall. The poultry is marinated in 14 secret spices and cooked for hours, yielding crispy, flavorful skin and moist, tender meat inside. The succulent chicken is served with starchy sides such as French fries, cilantro rice, sweet plantains, black beans and Inca corn. We'd like to see the Colonel top that.
2312 Ponce de Leon Blvd, Coral Gables
