I was staying on E 116 St with a group of friends, first timers in NYC for the most part. We wanted a breakfast and had walked past Caridad a few time on our way to Harley's (see separate review), but hadn't ventured in. This morning we did. Good Call as they say. SO good, so reasonable in price, superb... More

Located in East Harlem, we were looking for a caribbean and latin cuisine, when we found this one. Not fancy from the outside, it is wonderful from the inside...with a few sport TVs running. The main dishes are between 10 to 20 USD each and the portions are typically huge. The taste was sooo unbelievable good and the food was... More

We ordered shrimp mofongo and pork mofongo. We ordered seafood paella, fried chicken chunks, roast pork, Dominican soup. The mofongo looked and tasted good. The seafood paella was huge and delicious. The fried chicken, roast pork, and Dominican soup were also large and delicious. Everyone enjoyed the food.

We happened on this place and loved it. The grilled food is the best. Quantities are generous, so order to share or plan to take home what you can't finish. A counter next to the open-view kitchen is a take-out line, so locals come by here on their way home for some authentic take-out. Kind of a raucous local family... More

I was really looking forward to dining here after reading the restaurant's rating. I've been eating Dominican food for 24 years now and know when it's good. I had chicharron de pollo sin hueso and it came in small bite size pieces that a bird could handle and it was overfried. The maduros were delicious and one friend had the... More

Upscale food at low-scale prices. Fresh ingredients are offered time after time at this Latin/Carribean Restaraunt. Authentic recipes and flavorful foods fill your plate and palate time after time. Grilled specialties, rice dishes, and meats of all types are prepared with care by a staff which is always excited to see you. Great take-out and delivery too.........
