Pio Pio vs. El Pollo Rico

demigodh | May 26, 2009 11:15 AM

Just had Pio Pio, a Peruvian Chicken place in NYC, for the first time this weekend. However, I felt that it paled in comparison to my favorite restaurant while in college: El Pollo Rico. The restaurants have totally different vibes; for example Pio Pio has a full menu while EPR only offers 1/4, 1/2, or whole chicken with fries and cole slaw. Those factors aside, I think EPR chicken is far and away better. I also like their sauce more (mixing the yellow and green ones together makes a sauce similar to Pio Pio) as I find it less sweet.

For those of you that have been to both...
Which one do you think has better chicken? Better dipping sauce?
