Delicious Peruvian Roast Chicken at Pio Pio
On Sat, we went to Manhattan and for dinner, we went to this Peruvian restaurant called "Pio Pio" which I have been to once and loved. This restaurant has about four locations in Manhattan, two or three in queens and one in Bronx.
Last year, my friends took us to one of their upper east side location. It was really good so I wanted to go there again. This time, I found one location in Hell's Kitchen so we decided to go one in Hell's Kitchen this time.
One in Hell's Kitchen was bigger and little fancier than one in upper west side. We ordered same thing which we had last time.
Roasted chicken and Jalea which is fried seafood with tomato and onion salsa on top of them. They are just so good. chicken is so juicy and flavorful. Fried seafood is great with those tangy limey salsa.
The green sauce in the picture is really really good. We had to order refill of this green sauce for three times.
We also had avocado salad and french fries on the side.
On top of these, we also had two different kind of desserts (forgot to take picture). I am very proud that we (four of us) finished all of these food. I am glad that everybody enjoyed this Peruvian food. I wish I had this restaurant close to my house!
After the dinner, we wanted to go to a roof top bar with a nice view but since it was long weekend, some of the roof top bar we tried had a long line. Plus, we were not well dressed enough for some of the bars. So we decided to go to Japanese Karaoke box. We arrived there but this was also very busy and the wait was about one hour so we decided to do Karaoke some other time and went back home.
When we arrived home, it was already past 2 am and I was so tired. Maybe it was good that we couldn't go to a bar or karaoke that night. But I had a great time in the city!!!
