Boia De La Pollita Fried Chicken Sandwich


The restaurant: Boia De

Where: 5205 NE Second Ave., Miami

Takeout treats: Luciana Giangrandi and Alex Meyer are the two young chefs behind this buzzing Italian-inspired compact restaurant, which sprouted a loyal fan base since opening last June. Their ventanita, or takeout, menu offers favorites like crispy polenta ($8), eggplant parm sandwich ($11) and ricotta gnocchi ($19).

Don’t miss: La Pollita fried chicken sandwich ($11). Before there was Boia De, there was La Pollita, the duo’s hugely successful taco cart. The crispy chicken sandwich, juicy and perfectly crunchy fried chicken alongside a tangy cabbage slaw, avocado and creamy aioli was so beloved it was a no-brainer to add it to the restaurant menu as well.
