Hello, I've been craving good pollo a la brasa with yucca and plantains since I left no. Va, where it was all over. They served it with both a green and a garlicky white sauce down there...anyone have suggestions? I love in toms river, but will def travel!

            Second Planet Chicken. Check out Yelp to read a lot of reviews.

            This might be further south than what you're looking for but the best peruvian I've had in nj is Super Pollo in Brick. So good!
