Pollo in Park Slope

kraw | Feb 28, 200708:36 AM     8

There is no shortage of rotisserie chicken places in the Slope, I realize, but some are better than others. Pollo, a Peruvian chicken and rice joint with a very small menu, just opened on 5th Avenue between 1st and 2nd Streets, replacing what had to be the worst sandwich joint ever--and how you screw up a sandwich is beyond me, but I digress. Anyway, I thought the prices were a little high considering the competition with Coco Roco ($12 for Arroz con Mariscos, $9 for half-chicken) but I have to say, that was some fine tasting chicken. Moist with a crispy, flavorful skin, with a little chili kick cooked inside. The sauces they provide on the side are fresh and homemade. Also had their avocado salad and some tostones--generous helpings and very tasty, too. All in all, I was very impressed and will definitely try it again. It was empty when I went there for take out (and it is a nice build out -- not fancy, but much nicer than a plain ol' take-out place) and they seemed ecstatic to see a customer. Anyone else try Pollo yet? I think they just opened a week or two ago. Definitely give it a try. The added benefit: they're warm and friendly in there.
