Crisped skin, sticky with a flavor-packed glaze of lime, smoky cumin and garlic. Meat that slides right off the bone. Dewy, succulent and satisfying all at once. If you’re scoffing at the idea of eating an entire half-chicken on your own, you haven’t tried the Peruvian-style slow-roasted chicken at Misti Restaurant in Port Chester. Served with a side of rice and a light salad and ringing up for a doable $7 (or $5.50 if you go for the quarter). Wash it down with a cold Inca Kola, a sweet Peruvian soft drink similar to cream soda.
