April 27, 2018 By Tara Law

A restaurant that specializes in Peruvian cuisine opened its fifth location today–this one in Jackson Heights.

Riko Peruvian Cuisine opened at 78-14 Roosevelt Ave, the same building as Blink Fitness. The restaurant serves Peruvian meat, seafood and ceviche dishes as well as specialty cocktails such as margaritas and sangria.

The menu, which is the same as its other sit-down restaurants, serves traditional Peruvian dishes such as pollo a la brasa, a rotisserie chicken dish; lomo saltado, stir fried strip steak; and tres leches cake.

Riko, which was formerly known as Pio Pio Riko, also has restaurants at 45-23 Greenpoint Ave. in Sunnyside, 153-37 Hillside Ave. in Jamaica, and at 409 8th Ave. Chelsea.

Riko also operates an “express” location at 43-22 Queens Blvd, which specializes in takeout.

Riko is open 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday to Friday, and 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

Riko also provides catering and delivery.
