Pollo Tropical Introduces New Grilled Wing Option
Pollo Tropical’s Grilled Tropical Wings are spiced and finished over the restaurant’s flame grill. Unlike other wings, Pollo Tropical doesn’t coat the wings with batter or deep-fry them for taste. Instead, the wings get their flavor from mild Caribbean spices, as well as two new, never-before-tasted sauces: Pollo Tropical’s Pineapple Rum Wing Sauce and Spicy Amazon Sauce.
The Grilled Tropical Wings may be ordered as an appetizer or as a meal. The side dishes that come with the eight-piece portion can include balsamic tomatoes, Caesar salad, boiled yuca, corn, or curly fries. The eight-piece portion of the Grilled Tropical Wings is 400 calories, and contains 38 grams of protein.
“We are very excited about our Grilled Chicken Wings. Our initial in-store testing has exceeded our expectations,” says Jeff Webb, Pollo Tropical vice president of research and development. “We wanted a unique chicken wing product that was grilled instead of fried and had a tasty balance of Caribbean flavors.”
