going to the queens pio pio
is matador combo worth it, over ordering everything separately?
difference between seafood salad (appetizer), jalea (entree), and seafood platter (entree)?
I avoid that combo... the hotdog/french fries thing doesn't really work for me. I'm a huge fan of the chicken... plus they make great maduros, yuca fritas, avocado salad, pisco sours...
Jalea is lightly fried seafood (not even a little bit greasy), with lime juice and a few other things lightly spritzed on top. I like this a lot, but note that the small size is huge, and probably enough for three or more people.
Seafood salad is ceviche-style... octopus, squid, shrimp in a very citrus-y marinade (there's much better ceviche than this nearby). They also have a ceviche, which is cubes of white fish in a similar style. Not exactly sure about the seafood platter.
we always get the matador combo because we like the salchipapas (hot dogs/fries)...with at least 4 people that plus jalea is a huge amount of food. Oh yeah, also some ceviche, either mixed or just fish, always fresh. I skip sangria (too sweet for me) and drink Pisco Sours and Cusquena or Cristal beer. YUM
