Recently, while visiting churches and family in Roanoke, Virginia we were amazed to see a Peruvian restaurant. One of the most popular dishes in Peru is "Pollo a la Brasa" which is rotisserie chicken. It is cooked over hot coals and has a unique taste because of the smoke and special seasoning. In Lima, Pollo a la Brasa restaurants are on nearly every corner. We usually eat at one every Sunday on our way home from church. We have really missed our weekly meal of delicious chicken. It was great to have one of our favorite meals from Peru, in Virginia!
Even better than the food, was the opportunity we had to meet and chat with the Peruvian owners of the restaurant. We discussed Peru, their families, and church. They were really surprised that we spoke Spanish, and that we actually live in Peru. We hope to chat with them again in the future. If you are in Roanoke, Virginia be sure to give them a visit and get a little taste of Peru!
