Mr Pollo might be tiny and on the extreme end of casual, but their modern take on Latin American food is cheap and really good, so it’s great to share with a big group. They serve a $35 four-course menu that changes every night, but always includes some excellent arepas. Take advantage of the flexible BYOB policy - you can bring almost anything - or delve into the not-at-all average wine list (choices include a Muscadet sold in 40s). It’s a tiny space, so make it a two-person friend date or rent the whole restaurant out for a not-boring group dinner. It’s cash only though, so you’ll have to visit the ATM for the first time this year.
