Great place to stop to have an alcapurria and an arepa with codfish stew on top or crab stew on top. Do not forget a cold beer to have the perfect boricua experience at Sylvia.

This place is famour for their spherical shaped alcapurrias (different from the typical elongated ones). The food here is great...it has that "home-made" Puerto Rican flavour. The review below stated that the place is a "loud cafeteria, not for the family"...well what that person failed...More
