Good Peruvian chicken in the area?
Can anyone recommend a good place to get good Peruvian chicken or similarly cooked chicken? I live in Alexandria but will drive anywhere. I just have a craving for some good chicken!!!
You're Not Far. Arlington Has A Few, On Or Around Leesburg Pike. Best used to be Edy's, but I hear they've declined a bit since moving to a bigger place (don't miss the alfajore cookies). Try them, though, and some other places near there. Also, you're close to

re: Jim Leff
I just had their chicken on Monday night and it was GREAT. We generally go to the Crisp & Juicy in Falls Church, but I decided to try this place instead. The chicken has more flavor and a bit juicier. The only down side is when I ordered beans; I did not get the black beans. I got something that was more like refried beans instead.
I have had really good luck at Crisp and Juicy in Falls Church. I can't say the same for the branch in Rockville.
I'm not entirely certain that it's Peruvian, but there is a chicken place in the little strip mall directly across the street from the Huntington metro on North Kings Highway. There is also a great latino market there...
