Well known for an addictive, green, aji verde hot sauce, lovingly described as "green crack," Southern California's El Pollo Inka restaurant chain is expanding for the first time out of state and their Pollo Inka Express will soon be serving Peruvian dishes close to the Commercial Center.
A "Grand Opening" is now scheduled for Feb. 16 inside a former Taco Bell space. Pollo Inka's signature dish is their rotisserie chicken, Pollo a la Brasa, available in quarter, half and whole sizes with a choices of sides such as cilantro rice, yucca and platanos.
Promising to "spice up your life," the fast casual concept features a menu that includes lomo saltado, beef sauteed with onions, tomatoes, plus fries and rice and the tallarin verde, featuring a quarter chicken, plus spaghetti in a spinach and basil sauce.
They also offer an Inka chicken sandwich, beef sauteed with onion and tomatoes topped with shoestring fries on a toasted roll and the Lima, Peru, street food-inspired salchipapa, also created with fries, plus the essential hot dog topping.
Beverages include maracuya, a sparkling grapefruit drink, and chicha morada, a sweet fruit drink made from purple corn and bread pudding, flan and soft alfajores cookies will bolster the dessert menu.
