We love this unassuming place on the lower east side. The portions are large enough to share and the the prices can’t be beat. Always fast, friendly service and right across the street from Economy Candy.

I work in the neighborhood and the food is affordable and tasty. You can't compare fast food with their food. The food is delicious and cheaper than fast food. My favorite is the oven roasted chicken with rice and pinto beans.

The mofongo is the best ever, and only like $8. I get it every single time. Also, a cold Presidente beer makes this whole thing go next level. I don't think I've ever had anything bad here. The pepper steak, the pork chop, the sancocho...More

Came here with family for lunch. Fresh flavorful chicken dishes, fantastic sandwiches and wonderful espresso. Attentive service. Like taking a vacation trip without leaving the city.

Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and
smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like
entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle
that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families
stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up
at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from
the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many
bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where
