Peruvian cuisine holds a special place in my heart, with its rich tapestry of flavors and innovative dishes. While I’ve always been on a quest to discover the finest Peruvian eateries, my journey seemed to pause when I stumbled upon Pollo y Carbón.
Their menu is a delightful homage to authentic Peruvian flavors. From the smoky anticuchos and tangy ceviche to the earthy pachamanca and robust carapulcra, every dish tells a story. Their roast chicken is succulent, the picarones are a sweet treat, and the chicha morada offers a refreshing end. The best approach? Share everything. With generous portions and surprisingly affordable prices, it’s a culinary adventure you’d want to dive into with company.
While its location might be a bit off the beaten track, the journey to Pollo y Carbón is well worth the effort for any true Peruvian food enthusiast. And for those who prefer the city’s hustle and bustle, there’s good news: they have another two branches closer to the heart of the city.
But be prepared; the restaurant buzzes with energy. The patrons, a lively mix of locals, bring a contagious spirit of joy and celebration. The ambiance, though bustling, is all part of the charm. It’s not just a meal at Pollo y Carbón; it’s an experience, one that resonates with the vibrant soul of Peru.
