WHY Fantastic roast chicken or the traditional saltado de pollo. Add the famed cilantro sauce and an order of plantains and you’ll be in heaven.
WHAT The name may imply a competitor to El Pollo Loco, but this is actually a very sweet little sit-down restaurant with seductive and inexpensive Peruvian food, most notably the juicy, wood-smoked pollo a la brasa and the saltado de pollo, a stir-fry of chicken with onions and tomatoes, served with a double-carb whammy of potatoes and rice.
