El Pollo 1

Where: 1533 70th St, Brooklyn, NY 11228 (bet. New Utrecht Ave & 15th Ave )
  • Came here after gawking at the holiday lights spectacle of Dyker Heights
  • Ordered the BBQ chicken platter with rice and beans — very filling and cheap. For 3 people to eat, it cost $26. Served on Styrofoam platters with no vegetables in sight but that is to be expected
  • Very much a hole-in-the-wall, bathroom-is-in-the-kitchen-area situation and they scream “banyo” as you walk through for extra amusement and embarrassment points
  • As we ate, we watched the TV which was blaring loudly. It showcased a Latino boy-band getting ogled by their fans — screechy teen-aged girls transcend all language barriers and no translation was needed
