A long weekend has allowed my foodie friends and I to explore this part of town and give Señor Pollo a try.
Señor Pollo is located at F7 Building along Scout Rallos. The first floor is the counter where you order your food before you get seated on the second floor, which is the bar and dining area.
We had a whole, well, two halves of Señor Pollo Roast Chicken (Php 239 for half and Php 129 for a quarter) with sides of Fried Plantains (Php 35 for 6 pcs, Php 45 for 9 pcs), Spicy Rice (Php 45) and Patatas Bravas (Php 50).

What made Señor Pollo popular is their Latin chicken AND the chimichurri sauce. The chicken itself is flavorful and seemed to have been marinated well as the insides were quite tender and juicy. I couldn't complain about the sides either as everything complimented the chicken.
We also tried the Carne Asada Street Taco (Php 100) and Jalapeño & Cheese Quesadillas (Php 118).

It was said that the Street Taco we were served was similar to the ones their sister restaurant El Chupacabra has. It was delicious but not as impressive as I expected. What I loved was the Jalapeño and Cheese Quesadillas, with the right amount of heat mixed with the melted cheese bursting with flavors inside my mouth.
I was very satisfied with my experience in Señor Pollo, never mind the chicken aroma that sticks to your clothes. The prices were very affordable and the service was excellent. The place gets really crowded during lunch and dinner so try to come early.
I would love to give this another try, probably with booze this time.
