Pio Pio serves some of our favorite roast chicken in the entire city. For $10, you get half a juicy rotisserie chicken and a side of slightly spicy Peruvian green sauce. You’ll notice that there’s a lot of literature here about someone named Mama Juanita - the person who the chicken is named after. Try her namesake bird, and you’ll understand why we often list her as our emergency contact.
