Menu Favorites: Weekend “Pollo Asado” Special! Variety of Aguas Frescas such as: cucumber, strawberry, jamaica, horchata, melon & tamarindo.
“La Placita” is a grocery store & meat shop with an indoor food counter & a small dining area. You can order from a large refreshing, selection of homemade fruit drinks. I recommend the cucumber agua fresca for the hint of cucumber is exquisite and the fruit flavor is not overbearing. My favorite meal to order is the Pollo Asado Combo which is a weekend special. This special consists of a whole savory, grilled chicken with rice & beans, corn tortillas, grilled jalapeños & onions. The chicken tastes of lemon & salt. If the taste is too salty for you I recommend squeezing a fresh lemon on it. The meal easily feeds three adults. Chicken wings are not included unless you ask for them. Ask the cook to include the wings they are more than happy to comply.
Tip: The grill chicken special is only on the Saturday & Sunday. “La Placita” usually sells out by 3pm so get there early. Reminder -Ask for the chicken wings for they are not included. Visit their salsa & agua frescas bar inside the store. The fruit drinks are made fresh daily best to order them after 11am this gives the sugar time to settle & you can taste more of the fruit juice. Located at the corner of A Street & West Ventura Street (Hwy 126) across from Shell gas station & Catholic church.
Price: Bargain the Pollo Asado Combo is around $13.
