ndian Trail, add authentic pollo a la brasa -- that sensational Peruvian charcoal-fired chicken -- to your dining and entertaining options. Viva Chicken opens its seventh Charlotte-area location on Monday, May 14 in the Sun Valley Commons shopping center (6461 Old Monroe Road). The Charlotte community has embraced the homegrown Peruvian restaurant, and local restaurateurs Randy Garcia and Bruno Macchiavello are thrilled to expand their following in Union County. Their herb-enhanced rotisserie chicken is marinated for 24 hours and cooked in a charcoal-fired oven. Quinoa-stuffed avocado, Andina power food salad with Viva Chicken’s signature lime passion fruit vinaigrette and an Inca wrap with choice of pulled rotisserie chicken or steak are other favorites. Sides range from solterito (Peruvian corn salad), canary beans and cilantro-infused rice to plantains, yuca and sweet potato fries. Signature juices are made in-house daily and include herbal limeade (lime, basil, rosemary and mint), Maracuya passion fruit juice and the Chicha Morada (Peruvian purple corn, cinnamon, cloves, pineapple, apple and limes). Enjoy table service dining indoors or out on the patio. Online ordering makes swinging by to pick up dinner, a picnic feast or an entertaining spread a cinch, timely for outdoor dining season.
