News and Reviews
Chicken Latino in the press:
Mr. Munch in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:
The signature dish is a rotisserie-style chicken, marinated overnight with Peruvian spices and peppers, cumin and paprika, and cooked in a traditional brick oven, as is done in Peru. Chickens can be purchased in quarters, halved and wholes. Munch had half a chicken with a side of black beans and Spanish rice ($8.50) and the only regret Munch has is not ordering the other half as well. It was muy delicioso. A nice mixture of a smoky and zesty kind of a flavor. Read Mr. Munch's full review.
Colleen van Tassell in the Pittsburgh City Paper:
Since opening the restaurant in August, Shelbin Santos' pollo a la brasa has created a buzz. During my recent Saturday-afternoon visit, a man from Washington, D.C., sat at one of the 10 tables in the Strip District restaurant and raved about the quality and taste of the cooking.
"What a nice blend of spices," the man gushed, who had heard about the pollería -- chicken joint -- through a friend. "I've had Peruvian-style chicken at many places and I'm very impressed." Read the full City Paper review.Ê
The Trib Live Things to Do:
Pittsburgh's only pollería - quick-serve chicken joint - serves up Peruvian-style, wood-fired and deliciously seasoned rotisserie chicken. Besides the bird, hamburgers and the occasional special (pork, ceviche), sides include such south-of-the border staples as plantains, refried beans, fried yucca MORE
