This is a terrific casual neighborhood restaurant serving freshly-made delicious Puerto Rican food. It's just ridiculously good, yet it's so down-to-earth, so inexpensive, and so unpretentious. If I lived in the area, I might eat there very regularly--everything looks good.

It's like walking it most Puerto Rican homes where you stay in the kitchen talking and eating and never want to leave. The best pork chops ever. One day someone there is going to crack and tell me exactly how they season them. Lol

Casa Adela is your home away from home. If you like plain simple service and great Puerto Rican food, this is the spot. A remnant of the Lower East Side before it was gentrified. Great roast chicken, rice and beans. Try the octopus salad, cod fish stew and the homemade beef stew. Great coffee and natural juices. Adela a Lower East Side icon is always there as is Luis, her son. Visit Puerto Rico by visiting Casa Adela.

BEST ROAST CHICKEN IN NYC! This small place feels exactly like the kind of Mom & Pop places you'd find in Puerto Rico. They're not open too late ('til 9 or 10pm) but once you've tried their Chicken, Rice/Beans and fantastic Maduros (sweet plaintains) , you'll be returning for more!!! This place has "Flavor" in both food and atmosphere.
