Kash Keken Chuc

Meet the mid-island celebrity of taste, Kash Keken Chuc. The name translates to “Charcoal Grilled Chicken and Pork,” and trust me, it lives up to it. Spot it from afar with its bubblegum pink paint job that lures you in, but it’s the smoky fragrance of grilling meats wafting through the neighborhood that seals the deal.

Sure, the seating is sparse, but that’s because the vast majority of locals snatch up their food to go or opt for door-to-door delivery. If you do decide to nestle in for a meal, you’ll find the staff as warm and welcoming as the food, armed with a sprinkling of English and a ton of patience.

While you can choose from an assortment of classic Mexican dishes, the real stars of the show sizzle on the grill. The charcoal-grilled chicken, pork, and ribs are served with sides of rice, a velvety black bean purée, cabbage slaw, a deceptively sweet grilled onion, and a kicky salsa that will leave your taste buds in a happy salsa dance. Whether you’re craving half a chicken, a kilo of ribs, or a bit of both, Kash Keken Chuc never disappoints.
