For a fast-casual dining experience unlike any others you’ve had before, head to the newest spot in town, Poyoteca. Poyoteca Rockville is the second Maryland location serving up traditional Peruvian rotisserie chicken along with other popular South American dishes. The story behind this chain is super special as well. It was originally born in Lima, Peru in the 1970s, and has since grown into an internationally franchised restaurant. The family remains at the helm making sure their grandmother’s traditions live on through the cuisine.
The rotisserie chicken is the highlight of the menu. You can order chicken meals with all sorts of delicious sides like yuca fries, quinoa salad, spicy aji mac and cheese, and more. If you’re not in the mood for chicken, try the lomo saltado plate which is juicy marinated beef tenderloin served atop rice, fries, and peppers. For those on the healthy train, the avocado passion salad is a perfect option. Make sure to order a cup of chicha morada to-go with your order, it’s a sweet tea-like beverage traditional in Peru that completes any meal.
