0 If It Clucks Like A Delicious Peruvian Rotisserie Chicken..... It Must Be El Pollo Rico :)
Apparently, I'm on a roll & just can't stop writing this week. This time the subject is chicken.
If you are a Facebook friend of mine, & saw my most recent status updates, no doubt you probably saw this post:
"OMG, OMG, OMG. I think I've hit the jackpot of recipes. Is it true?! Does this recipe actually replicate the taste of El Pollo Rico's nationally-famous Peruvian chicken? Now I've just GOT to try it. I know a few people who've since moved away from DC, who will be VERY interested in this recipe. Hopefully it'll help quell a little bit of their homesickness & cravings for this unbelievably delicious chicken. :)"
I took a friend of mine to this restaurant several months ago. As a former DC area resident, she'd somehow missed eating at this place while living here & had been wanting to try it ever since. Of course, I had no problem complying with that request. In fact, I seem to recall that I was fairly insistent about taking her there. :)
She had a similarly ecstatic reaction to this place. It's the same with almost all of my friends I take there. It just can't be helped. All they do at this place is pollo a la brasa -- it's the main event, baby! -- but man, oh man, do they know how to "do it right"!
I even wrote a lengthy Yelp entry on the topic, writing, not one but two, entries on the subject of this place's legendary chicken, which inspires cravings in local area residents like you wouldn't believe.
Bock, bock, bock!!!!!
