Los Pollitos #2

Following Barry's suggestion (See "Good news for PS", 9/22), we went to the new Los Pollitos #2 at 148 5th Avenue. We each had burritos that were delicious. Though the burritos were all listed with single fillings on the menu, the staff was very gracious about going for the combinations we requested. Our Venezuelan waiter, Jorge Luis, was very charming, explaining that he had been a customer at the original Sunset Park place. When he heard they were opening a new branch, he applied for the job. So, he not only serves the food, he eats it too. He also recommended the flan, which he himself made. It was wonderful, delicately flavored with orange and garnished with orange rind. I must warn you though, the only negative was that it was HOT in the restaurant. The air-conditioning is useless at diminishing the heat from the kitchen. So, be prepared or choose a cooler day to try it.
