When you're on the go or touring the town and don't have any time to enjoy a sit-down meal, be on the lookout for a fritura (street vendors selling fried food). They sell hot, juicy pica pollo, a local fried chicken dish. It's golden, crispy, crusted and flavoured with a blend of oregano, then served with fresh garlic and lemon.
