If more places had to name themselves after the quality of their chicken, there’d probably be an uptick in the city’s number of quality birds. After all, nobody would be excited to go to “Overpriced Chicken” in Flatiron or “Chicken So Dry You’ll Want To Add Ketchup” in Chelsea. But Super Pollo wouldn’t have to change a thing. This Ecuadorian spot in Ridgewood does indeed serve “Super Chicken” and at $14.50 for a perfectly cooked whole roasted bird, it’s about one-eighth the price of “Overpriced Chicken” in Flatiron.

Chao Thai is a tiny cash-only spot in Elmhurst with exceptional salads that tend to have a good amount of heat.
"NO MENUS. JUST FISH" is pretty much everything you need to know about this Astoria restaurant.
