Peruvian Chicken in St. Louis

Hi there:

I've posted recently about my search for tripe sandwiches. I'm on another quest as a new resident. In the DC area there are tons of Peruvian chicken places (Pollo Rico, Super Pollo, etc. etc.). I think the technical name is Pollo a la Brasa. Is there anything like this in the St. Louis area? I'm missing it pretty hardcore.

Thanks!

    I haven't seen it since moving here from Los Angeles, where pollo a la brasa was also quite plentiful. That said, there are great places for roasted chicken (or fried)...but no pollo so far.

      Familiar w/ Peruvian chix from family in the DC area. Nope, nothing.

        The only Peruvian I know about is Mango, which is downtown, and more high end Peruvian than a pollo chicken shack. But you might start there.
