Pio Pio is a small chain of Peruvian restaurants that are a staple for New Yorkers in the know, yet surprisingly unknown to many others. Their chicken accompanied by their house-made Aji Peruvian green sauce is as good as it gets, among other dishes such as the melt-in-your-mouth sweet plantains.
Over the years, Pio Pio has expanded to larger (and more modern) spaces, but the service and setting is always pleasant with a casual vibe. To get the full experience, take the trip out to Jackson Heights where it all started.
