2006_03_food_piomaya.jpgNew York Magazine shows some love to one of Gothamist's local favorites, Pio Maya, a teeny taqueria housed in the space that was briefly Von Singh's. The article gives props to their tasty tacos, and also rightfully highlights their roast chickens, which are flavorful, juicy, and pretty damn reasonable. You can't beat the quarter chicken with a choice of sides (we tend to get the rice & red beans) for $5.50, and if you ask nicely, they'll bring out some of their special hot sauce, which is fruit-based and packed with quite a bit of heat, but not too much that the flavor doesn't shine through. And did we mention they deliver?
