    Authentic, delicious Puerto Rican food in a friendly atmosphere. The mofongo de pernil and passion fruit juice were fantastic. Loved the salsa music, too :)

    I would order the famous arroz con pollo (rice with chicken) as he competed against Bobby Flay, or the pernil con el arroz y gandules. Well worth it!! Oh and the lentil soup. :-) enjoy :-)

    No cc at the moment at the "new" location-but luckily Chase ATM on the corner. Fabulous food and cocktails (love the mojito and flan..) Still one of my dad's fave places.

    Try out your Spanish here as you order without a menu. Delicious Puerto Rican atmosphere: music, art, food, etc. Comfy, dim and relaxed.

    Rather eat at home or travel to Bridgeport. Better food and cheaper.
