Pinulito by Luna McCarthy

Other than the rivalry between futbol teams, there is another big rivalry in Xela; the rivalry between Pollo Campero and Pollo Pinulito. Fried chicken is exceptionally popular here and there are many places along the street where you can get some fried-up goodness. But if you ask the locals where they prefer to buy their chicken, they will either say “Pollo Campero” or “Pinulito” or “Meh, anywhere”. But for a “little guy” to compete with a national chain restaurant, it must be pretty impressive…there is even a Facebook page dedicated to Pollo Pinulito! Which do you prefer?
