As for our meal - we knew we needed to order the chicken. Keith has been to a few Peruvian chicken places in Virginia before, so was familiar with this style. But here at Pardo's the chicken was much more simple, with less seasoning than he's had at the American establishments.
Keith ordered the Half Chicken, which came with fried slices of golden potatoes. He had a breast, wing, thigh, and leg. While everything was fresh, Keith preferred the chicken he's had at El Pollo Rico to the Pardo's version.
Later on in the week, Keith returned to the Pardo's in San Isidro to get another plate of Pollo a la Brasa and some anticuchos of beef heart. He found them chewy, but flavorful. He thinks the beef could have been seared a bit more, but thinks his poor Spanish lead him to receiving the lighter cooked meat. Nevertheless, Pardo's is a great spot to stop for lunch after a day of sightseeing.
