A Little History…
Welcome to Firebrick Chicken. We are your local Peruvian chicken restaurant. Pollo a la Brasa, also known as Peruvian chicken, is a widely known and very popular Peruvian dish. This dish originated in the 1950’s in the capital city of Lima. The origin of this style of cooking the chicken is credited to Mr. Roger Schuler, a Swiss citizen who was in the hotel business in Peru. He carefully observed the way his housekeeper cooked the chicken slowly under the shade from the trees in the Santa Clara estate. He perfected the art of cooking and marinating the chickens for bold flavor. It has most recently become a phenomenon in the United States. No need to travel to Peru for delicious Peruvian chicken, you can find it just down the street in Ashburn, Virginia.
