One reason behind that popularity is the uniqueness of Barbacoa's food, which centers around wood-fire concepts, rotisserie and barbecue ("barbacoa" in Spanish). The restaurant is known for its juicy Peruvian chicken. The secret? It's brined for up to a day and then put on a double-spin, self-basting rotisserie, is cooked over three-year-old …
