Sopa Pollo at Rio Loco



cce0/1245266498-recdish2.jpgTraditionally when I go to a Mexican restaurant, it’s all about the chips and dip, burritos, chips and dip, big beers, chips and dip, margaritas, and chips and dip. On my last visit to Rio Loco, however, my companion threw me for a loop

by ordering a bowl of sopa pollo. Chicken soup? At a Mexican restaurant? Assured of its deliciousness, I ordered myself a bowl. I was pleased to discover that this was no ordinary chicken soup. Packed with chunks of chicken, rice, fresh tomatoes, onion, cilantro, and avocado, it had all my favorite Mexican flavors without the heaviness of, say, a steak burrito. It was delicious and satisfying. I left feeling full but not stuffed, which may be a first for me at a Mexican restaurant. — Stacey Greenberg
