Pollo Tropical® Is Beyond Excited To Help You Start The New Year With A Resolution You Can Keep - And Eat


MIAMI, Jan. 19, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Pollo Tropical® is announcing new menu items for those who want a delicious way to eat well this new year.

Back by popular demand, Pollo Tropical is once again offering their Vegan Picadillo in a Tropichop® and Wrap. The Vegan Picadillo is made with Beyond Beef®, a 100% plant-based ground meat made by Beyond Meat®, peppers and onions in a tomato-based sauce. Guests can now create their own Tropichop® by choosing a base like white rice, brown rice, or lettuce, then topping it off with Vegan Picadillo and your choice of toppings. For those craving a wrap, the Vegan Picadillo Wrap has the same delicious Vegan Picadillo, with your choice of white or brown rice, plus Pollo's famous black beans and sweet plantains, all in a tortilla.

Pollo's new Balsamic Tomato Chicken combines the fan-favorite balsamic tomatoes and the brand's signature citrus-marinated grilled chicken breast and is only 180 calories. Pair it with your choice of any regular side for a perfect way to eat right while enjoying your favorites for just $4.99.

The new menu items join the brand's recently-introduced line of Cuban Pressed Sandwiches – including the Original Cuban, the Crispy Chicken Cuban, the Grilled Chicken Cuban, El Clásico and a Pan con Lechón (Mojo Roast Pork). All items are now available in restaurants and online for curbside, in-store pick-up and delivery through the new MyPollo® app.
