Winner of Best Puerto Rican in the Village Voice 2011 Best Of issue! Get dinner, or creamy café con leche for a afraction of the price of most area coffeeshops.
Go to La Taza and order your entire meal in Spanish
Don't be afraid of the old-world interior and noisy Spanish conversations - we're all just here to eat great food! :)
This tastes like I'm sitting in mi abuelita's kitchen eating with family. And that's the best compliment you can give a place. Just amazingly good PR food.
I think they have the best breakfast! I had Oatmeal, Spanish Style Omelet and a coffee for less than $6! Beat that!
Try the cafe con leche. It's amazing
the best breakfast deal in Chelsea!
Delicious breakfast here!
The platanos maduros are the bombbbbb!
N-Sider favorite: This is one of our top places to stop to taste a variety of good standard Latin dishes, done right! From the flan, to the tender roast pork, to the cafe con leche. Everything is good
Try the roast pork with white rice and green peas.
One of the last authentic Puerto Rican food places left on the west side.
I really love this place. So much charm. Amazing cafe con leche. Delicious super sweet oatmeal.
I love this place. Standard meal: Roast chicken plus yellow rice, red beans & buttered bread (for soaking in chicken gravy). $7.75 with a soda for an amazing, cheap meal.
Spanish oatmeal!! W/ cinnamon OMG- definitely worth the detour!
It's all good! Great place for Caribbean comfort food!
Squid and rice. Baked pork chop. Red beans and sweet plantains.
Awesome oxtail and if you're more adventurous, awesome pigs feet. Fast and generous portions.
Try the Arroz Con Frijoles - The yellow rice was 86'd so I sort of made my own with some of their awesome home made hot sauce too. (via @Foodspotting)
Try the Chuletas - Extremely tender & juicy. If the waiter forgot the knife, it wouldn't have made much of a difference. (via @Foodspotting)
If you're in the mood for latin food...this is the spot to be. You get a good serving for the cost. The daily specials change everyday but you can also order from the menu.
The food here is awesome and very well priced
They sell bottles of their homemade hot sauce for $3. You're welcome.
i almost always get the salt codfish ensalada de bacalao or bacalao guisada. salad or stew, its very tasty either way!
Go on Saturday. Order Roast Pork. Have orgasm with your mouth.
cheap | rice and beans | nearly worthy of landmark spanish dive |
Don't drink espresso, it's shitty here
Freaking great Puerto Rican food! The pork cutlet and the pork chops are so freaking delicious! Really good place for food if you're in the area.
Sit at the counter, order the oatmeal, sprinkle some cinnamon on it, and enjoy the old-school charm of the place.
Sopa de mondongo is awesome!! Tripe
Try the Flan with a Cafe Expreso
Coffee is strong and oh-so damn good.
Must try: chuletas fritas with the green garlic, tostones and advocado salad.
Roast chicken, yellow rice and red beans ftw!
$6.50 for 2 slices and a fountain drink.
If you are in the area, stop by. Best Spanish coffee.
I used to think the cafe con leche here was pretty good. But after trying it recently, I think I was mistaken.
Their picadillo is tasty, side of rice and beans....your set
Verdadero sabor puertorriqueño.
