It is great to find nice, home made food in NY. I come from Panama and all the menu is familiar: red beans, beef or chicken stew (carne guisada), smashed plantains (tostones), sancocho (hearty beef stew) and many other typical dishes that you find not only in PR but also in the DR, Cuba, Venezuela, Colombia and Panama.

If you like typical food from these countries, then Casa Adela is the place to go!

When we first entered this small restaurant in the East Village, my wife and I didn't know what to expect. However, after we met Doña Adela, we were treated like family the rest of the time we were there. The pernil, alcapurrias, rice and beans, and mofongo were delicious-it was like being in Puerto Rico! You can bet next time we are in New York, we will stop by Casa Adela for some amazing Puerto Rican food!

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.
