Pio Peruvian Rotissarie Chicken - YYC

I stumbled across this place while looking for something to eat over lunch today. What a great find! This is a new spot that opened up a month ago in the old Cottage Chicken location (2929 Sunridge Way NE).

This is a fast casual style set up where you can dine in or take out. I opted to dine in and the owner (I assume) could not have been more helpful and informative. She explained the concept and made some suggestions. I opted for one of the two lunch specials, Pio con Quinoa. It is a 1/4 chicken with a light refreshing quinoa salad. Really flavourful chicken and the salad was delicious. The lunch special comes with a drink (I chose chicha morada... a lemonade-like drink made from purple corn) with the total for the meal being $12 (includes GST). The meal also comes with a side of their spicy (or mild) Pio sauce.

The meal was fantastic. I strongly recommend this place if you are looking to get your fill of rotissarie chicken. I was in and out of there in 20 minutes (although I did go a 1:30 for lunch) so it is a quick healthy alternative. I will be back.
