Don Pollo's chicken meat is juicy, easily sliding off the bone-it's so tender you might be tempted to stick a straw in it to try to slurp it up.

The best parts of the bird are the drumsticks and wings, where the tips of each nub transform into obsidian veins on the bone; you'll find yourself sucking on them long after the last of the flesh is digested.
