My girlfriend and I wanted to have lunch, and she said let's go to this place. It was my firs time there. Overall, the food is okay. The portions are rather large here. I ordered the asopao de pollo, which is a local stew of chicken and rice, and she ordered the steak with onions, as well as habichuelas (beans). We also had as appetizers sirullos and tostones.
The sirullos were okay. I found the tostones a bit bland, though, so I only took a taste and did not eat a whole one. My asopao came in a rather big bowl because it was quite a lot. However, while asopao generally has the consistency of a stew, this one look more like a soup, with the consistency being more watery. Overall, it was okay, but I wish it were thicker like a stew-I'm not a big fan of soup. My girlfriend, who's Puerto Rican, said it looked a bit watery. So, I'll have to try asopao in another restaurant. The ripe plantains were great, and they gave us quite a large amount. The habichuelas were good, and I added them and pieces of the plantains to thicken the watery asopao.
It's a place were the locals go, and it's okay, with kind service. I'm not sure whether I'd return, though, unless it's suggested by someone else and I go along with them. I've tasted better comida criolla at less expensive places.
