9 Great Puerto Rican Restaurants In NYC — New York

¿Qué tal, acho? If you’re anything like me, you may be wondering why are there so many awesome Puerto Rican restaurants (and people) in New York City. So here’s a quick history lesson because knowledge is cool: New York City has the largest population of Puertorriqueños (Nuyoricans or New York Puerto Ricans) in the United States. After World War II, during what was known as the Great Migration, a wave of Puerto Ricans looking for better economic opportunities made primarily East Harlem and the Lower East Side their home. East Harlem would later be known as Spanish Harlem (or El Barrio) and the Lower East Side/East Village as “Loisaida,” a Nuyorican pronunciation of Lower East Side.

They brought with them incredible cocina criolla dishes from the island (a mix of Indigenous, Spanish, and West African influences), along with their Boricua hospitality that all New Yorkers have the privilege and pleasure to enjoy. If you’re looking for all the tostones, mofongo, pernil, and chicharrón you could ever want, check out these great Puerto Rican restaurants across the city.

Casa Adela is pretty much synonymous with NYC Puerto Rican food (and endorsed by both Fat Joe and Rosario Dawson), and I ate here almost monthly when I lived in the East Village. The beloved neighborhood spot, founded in 1976 by the late Adela Vargas, is a great place to start for first-timers: Get the mofongo (fried, crushed plantains mixed with garlic and pork crackling), tostones (smashed and twice-fried green plantains), and chicharrón de pollo (chicken crackling served with rice and beans). They’ve also added additional outdoor seating, which is pretty hard to miss with the Puerto Rican flag emblazoned corner to corner.

Spanish Harlem is one of the Puerto Rican epicenters of New York, and La Fonda Boricua has been one of its most recognizable restaurants for the past 25 years. Start with the tail-on shrimp mofongo, which comes with plátanos in garlicky salsa de ajo or salsa tomate. Their classics like pernil, ensalada de bacalao, and pollo guisado are safe bets, but make sure to try the chuleta kan kan too, a unique cut of pork first created in Puerto Rico in 1957. It’s a bone-in loin chop, with a bit of the belly and the skin still attached, roasted and finished in a deep fryer to crisp the skin. Besides the great food, this place is also a destination for live Latin jazz bands and flamenco dancers.

This Fordham Heights institution on 116th (with a second location at 188th) is another icon. During the ’60s, owner Jose Coto Sr. came to New York City with his family from Cuba and opened the Puerto Rican restaurant in response to the demand from newly immigrated Puerto Ricans looking for home-cooked food. Even though I dabble in veganism at times, it’s places like Cuchifritos that keep me from fully committing with dishes savory pork ear stew, juicy pig’s stomach, and fried pork belly. In addition to the requisite mofongo and rice and beans, get the restaurant’s namesake plate, which comes equipped with pig ear, pork tongue, banana, and blood sausage.

Sofrito is a party restaurant in the Heights that feels a bit like stepping into a nightclub. That’s thanks to the rainbow lights, salsa music, and a super high ceiling with hanging colored fiberglass strings. It’s great for a buzzy birthday or boozy brunch, although you should know most entrees range from $25-$40. To fuel yourself for the inevitable dance session, load up on the alcapurrias (a beef-stuffed taro root fritter), empanadas, pernil, and churrasco. Definitely make a reservation and see if you can get a table with the incredible view of the George Washington Bridge.

Hit up the Langston Hughes House on 127th Street and then grab lunch at this friendly, tiny counter-service spot that’s been run by Rosa Flores and her husband Hector Quiroz for nearly 30 years. Beneath the neon sign that spells its name with an upside-down pig, you’ll spot a feast of roast pork, sausage, and cuchifrito hanging in the window. Inside, you’ll find all the straightforward Puerto Rican classics: stewed bacalao, rellenos de papa, pollo rostizado, pastelillos, and morcilla. The go-tos here are the crackly skin roasted lechón and the roast chicken, but don’t leave without trying some of Rosa’s flan either.

Astoria

What started out as a Puerto Rican food truck is now a brick-and-mortar found between a laundromat and a pub in Astoria. Derick Lopez, the executive chef/founder, and his husband Victor Vargas say if you’re looking for your abuela’s pasteles (boiled plantains with pork and olives), then you should probably pay them a visit. These are in fact silkier than tamales and contain no corn—they’re super labor-intensive and not widely offered at other restaurants (but Cuchifritos does make some too). Add a plate of mofongo to the pasteles, followed by tembleque (a jiggly coconut pudding) and a coco rico soda. And if you feel like trying your hand at some Puerto Rican recipes, The Freaking Rican also sells homemade sofrito so you don’t have to try to replicate the all-important mix of herbs and spices at home.

Remember how “cuchifritos” means a slew of fried foods? That is also going to be part of your order at this pequeño restaurant in Williamsburg located underneath the elevated M train’s Flushing station. La Isla Cuchifritos has been around since 1960, and it’s a great stop for fried pork, ears, tongue, and bites of sweet plantain. But I can’t pass up the excellent rotisserie chicken, which I casually enjoy all by myself at the restaurant’s blue counter.

Atlanta’s Best Cuban, Dominican and Puerto Rican Restaurants — Best places to eat in Atlanta, GA

Atlanta’s best Cuban, Dominican and Puerto Rican food can be tough to define. The approach to cooking for all three of these come from the same history – a mash up of the native cultures that lived on each island, along with flavors from the colonizers’ native Spain, and the West African traditions of the enslaved who were brought to those Islands by traders. This cultural alchemy results in a cuisine focused on island starches like plantains and yucca, native proteins like pork and shellfish, and seasonings like Cumen, Tumeric and garlic. We’ve explored Atlanta to look for restaurants that completely embrace these flavors and deliver incredible, Latin-island traditions to first time customers (and those who keep coming back for more).

As a native Puerto Rican, Chef Hector Santiago grew up on the delicious pressed sandwiches you can find at roadside delis and stands throughout the island. So when he was considering concepts for his new Puerto Rican restaurant when Ponce City Market opened, there was only one hero for the job – El Super Pan. Making sandwiches like the Cuban Mix, Farm Cubanos and Medio Dia, they also make excellent tostones, yucca fries and madras if you’re looking for something sweet.

The newest addition to the island mix, My Abuela’s Food opened in late 2019 at the Spindle bike shop, just behind Krog Street market. As a pescatarian, Chef Luis Martinez has been on a mission to provide more empanada options than your standard picadillo filled fried pastry. He’s made a Vegan and gluten free version now to make sure that everyone can enjoy empanadas know matter what their dietary restrictions might be.   They also make killer tostones, sandwiches and rice bowls.

The legend of the Cuban sandwich was not that it started in Cuba, but here in the United States. Cigar factory workers in the Tampa area were always looking for a good nearby lunch option, and using local ingredients with Cuban culinary history, the Cubano was born. Cubanos ATL keeps that tradition going with their mouthwatering Cuban sandwiches like El Tampa and El Miami, along with their chicken option El Pollo. They also have a DELICIOUS flan along with incredible cuban coffee.

These guys make the best Cuban, Puerto Rican or Dominican pastries in the City – hands down. Called pastelitos, their sweet pastries are puffed pastries filled with guava, cream cheese or both together. They also make savory ones with beef, delicious cuban sandwiches, tropical milkshakes, and much more. Formerly a food truck, you can now find them in Decatur.

The big boys when it comes to Caribbean cuisine, Papi’s Cuban Cafe has 6 locations and growing – everywhere from Midtown ATL to Emory Point to Stockbridge and the Airport, there’s a Papi’s Cuban Cafe near you. We loved the rope vieja when we were last their – savory shredded beef with peppers and onions.

The A’s best mofongo (mouthwatering plantain mash) may be in…Lilburn? At Versace Dominican Restaurant, they make their mofongos fresh, with incredible protein options like rope Vieja, shrimp, steak, stewed chicken and more. They also have mangu, a mofongo variant with butter that is INCREDIBLE. Order one with a Presidente for the ultimate Santo Domingo experience.

We couldn’t create a Latino focused restaurant list without having at least one Buford Highway restaurant on there. Sabor Dominicano is more than worthy of being on this list though. We love their traditional Dominican breakfast options, like mangu (see above for description) with cheese, eggs and salami. But we keep coming back for the arroz con pollo – one of the most accessible, delicious Caribbean dishes.

Located up the road on Jimmy Carter Boulevard, Cafe Dominicano is modest looking on the outside, but the flavors are powerful. We loved the Bistec Encebollado – basically a cube steak marinated with extremely flavorful elements like onions, sofrito and vinegar. They also make the hard to find quipes – delicious, deep fried beef and bulgur meatballs!

Taking a more pan-latin approach to everything they do at K Bueno Latin Cafe, this modest Jonesboro restaurant they make incredible, hard to make appetizers like Alcapurria – mashed platings or yucca stuffed with a savory mixture of ground meat or pork and boiled in plantain leaf. They also make a picador dish for a big group of carnivores visiting – fried cracklings chicken, steak, pork, salami, cheese, tostones and Dominican sausage!
