Señor Pollo is a Peruvian restaurant in Garden Grove. The hen here has a skin that crackles as if toffee brittle, encasing soft flesh soaking with a soy-based marinade that brings out flavors tart and sweet, hearty yet light! The chicken makes cameos in other plates: in the hefty saltado, on top of the fried rice, and covered in the spaghetti strands that make up the tallarín. But the best way to enjoy the pollo is with a half-order: at just less than $9, with a cargo container of French fries, it’s as great a chicken special as Zankou’s.
