I grew up eating at the IHOP with my grandfather that was in the same spot where La Brasa Rotisserie & Grill is now located. The building looks totally different inside but there’s no denying by looking at the structure what it once was. After reminiscing a bit with Chunktronics about it we then get our game faces on.
As much as I’d love to give Chunktronics some credit for suggesting La Brasa, his record with me on suggestions is pretty awful. The truth is it was raining pretty badly and we were finishing running some errands for El Main Evento. La Brasa is a few blocks from my parent’s home where we were headed so we stopped in.
The smell of delicious Chicken double slapped us three stooges style when we approached the counter. Chunktronics had been here a few times so he was ready to go and I was now feeling the pressure, luckily we were the only ones there.
We both end up with a 1/4 of the Rotisserie Chicken with Black Beans & Rice. I add some of the Garlic Roasted Potatoes and what the hell, some Salchipapas.
Let’s skip over the Salchipapas cause they really weren’t anything out of this world but those Garlic Potatoes were simple yet right on point. The Black Beans were excellent and remind me of the ones I have at my parent’s house. And the Peruvian Rotisserie Chicken was a grand slam in the bottom of the ninth at the World Series.
I can’t believe I have driven past La Brasa hundreds of times over the last few years and didn’t stop in until now. I should be ashamed of myself but I’m not. I’m looking forward to having many more meals here over the next few years.
