Pardo's chicken - Just as good as now-defunct El Pollo

Benjamin68 | Dec 17, 200601:42 PM     5

Stopped by this new Peruvian chicken chainlet last night. While I only room enough for a quarter chicken, I was extremely impressed. The skin was super crispy and flavorful the spicing permeated every nook of the chicken. Moreover, they give you two accompanying sauces, one of which, the green peppercorn, is superb (the other, homemade mayonaise, paled in comparison).

This chicken was as close in flavor to my all-time favorite, El Pollo, which used to have two locations (SoHo and Upper East Side), both of which closed.
