Were in Durham helping our daughter and family work on their new home before moving in. They had talked about this place so we brought it in for lunch. The chicken was super tender. The yucca fries were tasty and the beans and rice was also very tasty. They have a couple of sauces and the light sauce was very good with all our foods. (There is also a green, very spicy sauce that I didn't think of trying.) I look forward to having it again!

we were struck by the similarities with boston market, but with much fewer choices. so its like a peruvian takeout place. The food was refreshing.
arroz chaufa, the fried rice dish was so so. You will need some sauce to enjoy it. The white and the green sauce definitely helped. The green sauce is quite spicy. So spice lovers can spice up to their hearts content, while milder ones can still enjoy the base food.
pollo saltado was good. The chicken is nice, but a little dry. But the sauce made up for everything. If we hadnt tasted this dish, we wouldnt think of going back here again. Thinking of going back, it depends, do I want to go to boston market or here. Glad to have choices.
we had the
Portions are of good size and the place is nicely decorated and spacious.
We had a cookie as well. with caramel something. Will skip on that next time unless you are ok with it getting stuck to your teeth.

Pretty good place to eat some real good chicken. It wasn't dry and is very moist. Great place to go eat for lunch.
