Dominican/Puerto Rican food near Chelsea Market Basket

I am headed to Chelsea to do my grocery shopping tomorrow and I have a serious craving for some good Latin food. Does anyone know where I can get some from in that area? The place needs to do takeout since I will not have time to sit down and eat. I am dreaming of pollo asada and chicharrones. HELP!

  1. There are a few ideas in the post linked below. Bella Isla is very close to Market Basket, but although they may have roast chicken sometimes (you can pick items cafeteria style), its not a rotisserie chicken place. I prefer Latino Restaurant for chicharron though. At one point they had a rotating menu and roast chicken on it, but most days they just have fried chicken. El Chalan is a good option for chicken and is nearby, but is Peruvian style chicken and not Dominican (the nearest Dominican chicken joints I know of are in Lynn). El Chalan isn't great for chicharron, though. All are fine for takeout, although parking is easiest Bella Isla -> Latino -> El Chalan.
