Claremont, off the Indian Hill exit
Pollos Kikiryki serves not just the best chicken in Claremont, but among the best in Southern California. Tucked away in an easy-to-miss corner of a strip mall, there’s nothing modest about the big, glistening Peruvian style birds rotating in a rotisserie oven right behind the counter of the small restaurant. The menu features stellar renditions of other favorites from Peru, including lomo saltado (steak and fries) and ceviche—and everything’s better topped with aji verde, a spicy green sauce.
Make sure to try: half chicken combo and an Inka Cola
