When I'm craving some good Puerto Rican food I head here to The Fonda Boricua. Located in the heart of "Spanish Harlem" (East Harlem), this restaurant is more than just a place to have some great food. They serve some typical Puerto Rican meals with a friendly and unique experience. There are no menus here, you basically have to know your PR food, or the waitress/waiter will sound off a list of foods available.
This restaurant offers a unique cultural experience with some art work and live latin jazz on Thursdays.
The food is so good that an "Throwdown with Bobby Flay was filmed here, the Arroz con Pollo episode. If you get a chance, definitely for some deliscious authentic PR food, YUM!!
Favorite Dish: All their dishes are great! I love their "pernil" (roast pork), with white rice, beans and and avocado salad. I've also had their fried pork chops, chicharron de pollo, bacalao quisado, filite de pollo, bistec encebollado, mofongo and beyanda.
