I’m counting down the 100 best dishes I tasted in 2015…

Pollo at MALECON RESTAURANT

Some modern restaurants get much acclaim for their tender, juicy chicken. But in the Latin American world, certin old-school rotisseries have mastered the poultry. Malecon up in Washington Heights is one such establishment, where the incredibly moist chicken with crispy browned skin and a side of spicy green sauce. Any of the sides will work, but I especially like the mangú (mashed green plantains). Price: $10.50 (with side order)
