Kikiriki, my favorite restaurant for chicken.

There are restaurants and street vendors cooking chicken over charcoal on nearly every street corner in Iquitos. I haven’t eaten at most of them because Marmelita and I like Kikiriki’s chicken. For my taste, and budget, I don’t see how chicken over charcoal can consistently be better than Kikiriki. In the last 4 years we probably averaged eating at Kikiriki once a week and call their delivery service (Ph# 232020) at least once a week.

We both get the quarter of a chicken with fried bananas and slaw for $2.75. It is more than I can eat. Sometimes we only get one serving and share it. French fries or boiled potatoes are a few cents more than the bananas. We enjoy the hot and spicy green table sauce.

Take a look at the large unique home-made rotisserie, fan, and bed of coals that the chickens are cooked over.

Kikiriki is easy to find at Napo #159, on the corner of Condamine, one block west and a little north of the Plaza de Armas walking away from the river, past the smaller El Dorado Hotel. They open at 6:00pm.

Everyone has their favorites, and if you know a place that serves better chicken cooked over the coals, let me know in the comments. I will give it a try and report back here on the Captain’s Blog.
