IMPORTANT MESSAGE!

 

Starting Polli-Tico four years ago and seeing it grow as we’ve served and met all of our awesome customers, has been a rewarding journey! We started with a single food cart in downtown Portland and have since relocated and happily grown to include an event food truck as well. Thank you for your support with these ventures!

As we look ahead hoping to take our food business to the next level, we have decided to rebrand to CHAR’ Latin Grill. We have been excitedly working really hard on launching this new chapter of our story. In the coming days you will see lots of changes in our cart and truck, including new menu items. Don’t worry, we’ll keep your favorites! :) We look forward to continue growing with you and offering you the best we’ve got to give!

At CHAR' (formerly Polli-Tico) we specialize in Latin Cuisine & Street food.  Our dishes range from our Signature Rice Bowls to traditional sandwiches to our famous charbroiled chicken or "Pollos a la Brasa".

Our traditional Chicken Platters represent a typical Peruvian Pollo a la Brasa meal from Lima, Peru. With exotic sides such as yuca fries and fried plantains it is truly an ethnic experience. You can order from a quarter chicken to even a whole chicken!

Our house made sauces top off our dishes with great flavor that will entice your taste buds.

 

 We have great meals such as "Lomo Saltado" a traditional Peruvian steak dish seasoned with fresh peruvian spices.
We also offer our CHAR' Rice bowls full of latin flavor as well as our CHAR' fries.
We are proud to be the home to great Latin food.

Seasonal Ceviches, soups, and specialty items!

The Oven


The Oven


 

We wanted to provide a full Peruvian Chicken Experience. In order to do so we had to have a charcoal rotisserie. We looked all over the states and could not find any charcoal commercial size rotisseries. After extensive research we decided to order our oven directly from Lima, Peru. After contacting several manufacturers we finally decided on one. The rotisserie took 2 months to be fabricated. We made arrangements to have the oven imported from Peru. After 3 weeks of delays with U.S. customs the oven finally arrived.

The process was a hassle and it took nearly three months to get the oven into Portland, but we know it was worth it so we can provide the real experience of Peruvian Style Chicken.

Our rotisserie oven can cook 30 chickens at a time in a matter of 3 hours.
