The Colombian chain, which features free-range all-natural chicken slow-roasted for 70 minutes, garnered the attention of Richard Sandoval during a culinary trip to Colombia. The prolific chef who owns restaurants in New York, Las Vegas, Mexico, Colorado, Dubai, and Qatar was so enraptured with his meal, he decided he wanted to partner with the company's CEO Eduardo Robayo and become its executive chef.
Kokoriko brought over some dishes for Miami New Times staff to try at lunch yesterday. The verdict? Flavorful food with some surprising additions to the usual fast-casual chicken menus, like corn cachapas pancakes filled with chicken, chicken soft tacos, and arroz con pollo. Some items got better reviews than others. For instance, the arroz con pollo was salty, but the tacos had a surprisingly nice heat to them. Others noted the chicken was moist and juicy, and the cole slaw had a touch of cayenne pepper.
This weekend is a good time to try some for yourself. To celebrate its grand opening today, April 27, Kokoriko Natural Rotisserie will be offering everything on the menu at half-price until Sunday, April 29. The offer is good on everything on the menu -- including alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages -- during lunch and dinner service (dine-in service only).
