el pollo unico
some consider this the place for chicken in pasadena. just the yelp reviews alone meant that i should have visited this place a long time ago. but it wasn't until this week that i finally jumped in and experienced el pollo unico.
the menu is stripped down and simple. you choose how many pieces of chicken you want and choose from a handful of sides - tortillas automatically included. while we weren't blown away with the side dishes, the chicken was wonderful - clearly some of the best i've ever had.
el pollo unico used to be across north lake avenue in the 7-11 plaza, but has moved to a refurbished newer location (which includes this odd poster, seen below).
