Diego, who mans the kitchen at this hole-in-the-wall Peruvian rotisserie chicken joint, has been a veteran of numerous chicken spots throughout Miami, always taking his closely guarded recipe with him.

This place had been around for a while before changing hands to a new owner who kept the original recipe for its famous charbroiled burgers but made the rest of the menu halal.

Hollywood has one of the highest concentrations of Peruvians in the country, so it should come as no surprise that the country’s cuisine should show up twice on this list. Peruvian sandwiches have become increasingly popular in South Florida, and this is one place that takes the fairly minimalist “sanguche” quite seriously. Its fried pork and sweet potato sandwich is their signature.
