Pollito Con Papas

A delightful taste of Peru comes to Albuquerque!

Albuquerque Good & Cheap RestaurantsPollito Con Papas (chicken with potatoes) are to Peru what burgers and fries are to the American palate. They are Peru’s well-loved fast food staple, sold in restaurants and roadside stands throughout that coastal nation. Pollito Con Papas are fresh whole chickens marinated for at least ten hours in a mix of savory seasonings that imparts a complex flavor that doesn’t rely solely on salt (as grocery store rotisserie chicken tends to do). The chickens are fire roasted on a slow turning rotisserie and served with a creamy green dipping sauce and thick sliced fries.

Howie Kaibel, who runs yelp.com, picked Pollito Con Papas and their stuffed potato as a “must-have.” This modest restaurant focuses on to-go meals, with a few impromptu tables, and will not “wow” you with its simple decor. However, it offers a limited menu of inexpensive and perfectly prepared meals that are a true culinary bargain!
