Pio Pio

Get the best chicken here. Masters of Peruvian food and rotisserie chickens, Pio Pio is the best place for both. Delight your taste buds with some Arroz Chaufa (Peruvian-style Chinese fried rice mixed with chicken, eggs, onions and soy sauce) or Jalea (typical Peruvian fried mixed seafood platter topped with salsa criolla).
