Editorial Review of Brasa Roja

Rotisserie chickens line the windows of this affordable Colombian grill, which serves up fried fish, rotisserie rabbits, char-grilled lamb and a variety of steak as well. The meat is exceptionally cooked, and most of the hearty meals cost somewhere in the neighborhood of $10. In addition to the beef, your plate comes heaped with sides like a simple salad, white rice, potato, fried plantains and cassava, a superb substitute for dull French fries.

Sundays feature the special chicken hen soup stew, a steaming bowl of broth, served with chicken, rice, avocado and other add-ins. There's no appetizer menu (appropriately...this place defines simple) but there are a few corn-pancakes-with-cheese-type sides, as well as four flavors of flan and figs with caramel milk for dessert. BYOB.

Average cost: $10-$20
