El Pollon

El Pollon is a new restaurant in Morgantown - but not new to West Virginia. In fact, they have an original location in Ranson, West Virginia - all the way over in the Eastern Panhandle.

El Pollon

This restaurant features Peruvian-style rotisserie chicken, but has a variety of different options - from breakfast to wings.

El Pollon

"The Charcoal Rotisserie chicken "Pollo a la Brasa" is a cultural icon of Peruvian cuisine, which originates in the 1950s in the city of Lima. In October 2004, The National Institute of Cultural declare "Pollo a la Brasa" as " Cultural Heritage of the Nation." On June 23, 2010 is setting the "Day of Charcoal Rotisserie Chicken" "Dia del Pollo a la Brasa" to pay tribute to a cultural icon of Peruvian cuisine, the third Sunday of July each year. The Peruvian chicken coals has become part of the national cultural heritage."

I ordered lomo saltado - tender steak sautéed with onion and tomatoes, served with french fries and a side of white rice. This popular Peruvian dish is not found in many places around the Mountain State, so I was excited to check it out. 

El Pollon

The stir fry had delicious tender strips of steak and a nice sweetness from the sauteed red onion. I dipped my fries in the delicious, savory juice and it was tasty. It's really a straightforward dish, but the attention to seasonings and spices make it shine.
