Best Whole Roast Chicken - 2007
La Tropicana Market & Cafe
Chicken: a domestic fowl developed for its eggs, feathers and juicy flesh. Mojo: Cuba's signature marinade, existing in many variations and subject to the whims of its creator, but often including garlic, jalapeño, scallion, lime, cayenne, cumin, sour orange juice and vinegar. Whole roast chicken con mojo ($6.99) by the Trabanco family of La Tropicana Market & Café in the Southtown neighborhood: a succulent brown beauty that flies off the plate. Perfecto.
