Flor de Mayo's Peruvian-style roasted chicken: What's the spice?

Flor de Mayo is a popular Latin food/Chinese food place with two location on Manhattan's Upper West Side. One of their major offerings is a whole, Peruvian-style roasted chicken, which tastes very good. There's a distinct spice note to the dish that I've wondered about for some time. Sure, there's a blend, but just as in, say, Indian food, there's a prevailing note there. I had this last night, loved it again, and am again wondering what that flavor is. Thanks in advance...
