Flor De Mayo
Posted by Anonymous on 11/04/2008
I've been coming to Flor De Mayo for years. And i honestly think that if you just think there chicken is good its prolly cause all you've ever ate there was chicken. The Mastia Frita is amazing and the white rice with black beans. this places is cool, if you are spanish its fun talking with the chinese workers and seeing where they picked up there spanish from. As well as the SANGRIA its is quite good if i might say so my self. I never had take out but why would you ever get Flor to go... thats like getting a PSP instead of a PS3.. yea it will get you around but its not the real deal!!!.... I LOVE THIS PLACE anyone who anted to go and have a great time with a bunch of friends should def come here...

I've been going to Flor de Mayo for over a year now and cannot find a better tasting half chicken for a better price. My fiancee and I eat for less than $20. She likes the half chicken with yellow rice and red beans I prefer it with shrimp fried rice. At times I do feel that I am being rushed, but such is the atmosphere of a busy Manhattan retaraunt. I tried their beef with brocolli and was dissapointed. Don't be fooled by the exotic Spanish/Chinese food catagory that they put themselves in. The chicken is their best dish. Anything else is a waste of time and money.

I have been goin to Flor de Mayo for about a year now and there food is really good the waiters are very nice and the armosphere is also nice . I disagree with Jason about the spanish food its actually very good, its more dominican and puerto rican style than any other maybe thats why he did not like it .

My favorite food is the pork fried rice and Chicharon de pollo no bones. Yum, very good.

Let me start off by saying we took take out. So atmosphere looked ok when I was in there, service was good on the phone, even though they said they couldn't deliver to 59th which is only one block further then where they say they deliver. We ordered wonton soup (not good), aji de gallina (small portion and not good), and lomo salteado (ok). Aji de gallina is my favorite dish so I was a bit let down. Maybe I'm just used to good home cooked Peruvian food.

I have been going to Flor for the past couple of years. I consistently get what they specialize in, the chicken. The half-chicken meal and a glass or two of wine is the best deal on the west side. I generally go to the 100th street restaurant where they know me and I usually go alone. Never feeling uncomfortable, the place is vibrant and the service is quick and friendly.

To begin with, the Peruvian food menu is very limited. We tried Ceviche, Lomo Saltado and Aji de Gallina. The ceviche did not include neither sweet potato nor corn, it was more like a raw fish soaked in lime juice with chooped onions on top, the onions did not even have the lime juice flavor. The Lomo Saltado was less than OK, you could even count the pieces of meat on a plate full of rice. The Aji de Gallina was acceptable, but any Peruvian who cooks knows that it is the easiest dish to prepare, you can not go wrong with that. No chicha morada or bottled water was available. The service was not great either, you could feel that they were rushing you to leave quickly. I would not recommend this place to any Peruvian, it was a big dissapointment.
