Weekends are for cheat meals. So one weekday that Miko went to Makati to meet up with me for lunch, we went to Señor Pollo to have some enjoyable, healthy food.
It’s a street away from it’s sister resto, El Chupacabra. We went there around 2pm, so there were only a few customers. It tends to be crowded during dinner time.
Señor Pollo is known for its Latin Chicken. There’s fried and roasted pollo. We had the latter.
As we waited for our food to arrive, we can’t help but notice the artsy, colorful walls. Kudos to whoever did these paintings. :)
No idea why they chose this excerpt from Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s masterpiece, Love in the Time of Cholera…
The food was brought to us after 5 minutes upon being ordered. Miko and I both had a quarter of a chicken with 2 sides. I had mashed sweet potato and a fresh salad. He had 2 cups of salad kasi mas nagda-diet siya. Hehehe! :p Pero nagCoke siya. Ako, watermelon shake.
Everything was delicious and we only spent around 600 pesos. The chicken was roasted to perfection and tasty inside-out. Loved the sauces especially the chimichuri. Other sides that you might want to consider are their fried plantains and jalapeño mac n cheese. Oh, and they have wagyu bacon fries!
Señor Pollo also has a branch in Quezon City.
We had dinner in Señor Pollo last week and Miko had the same dish- roast chicken with mashed sweet potato and tossed salad. He really loves the simply vinaigrette they use.
I tried their spicy fried chicken with macaroni salad and fried plantains as sides:
The macaroni salad was bland. It has bell peppers, olives and lettuce and there was barely any mayo or cream. The chicken was crispilicious and really spicy. Thank goodness for the ice cold Brew Kettle that helped me get through the meal. Hehe
For dessert, we had the Flan de Naranja. No choice, because this is the only dessert they have. Buti na lang, masarap naman. :) It’s leche flan with mandarin oranges at the bottom.
