                          This is the best Cuchifrito left in the Bronx/Spanish Harlem area! Legendary! I went today and tried the "canoa" Platano filled with ground meet and covered in cheese. I WILL BE BACK FOR MORE! the Papa Rellena, Pastelillos, Chicharon< Rice and beans, Mofongo is so good! This is a MUST! This is a taste of an abuelas kitchen. Not fancy, not fussy just the best. When I eat the food here, I can taste the eateries of Luquillo beach and in the cold it warms my heart to have a taste of the Island of Enchantment, mi Puerto Rico!

                                                  I love their back story though. Puerto Rican’s are definitely a dying breed in the Bronx.

                                                    This place is right by my house in the Bronx and I’ve had a few of the cuchifrito items... the pastellitos and the relleno de papa. I wasn’t too happy. I’m Puerto Rican from NY and I’ve had these items many times before here in NY and on the island. It was extremely greasy here. Maybe because it was late at night it could’ve been there all day. I’m just a little nervous to ever go back.

                                                        good to see a real cuchifritos in business still, the classic one on 116th just doesn’t cut it anymore and isnt as good as others (not to mention it’s all dominican cooks but the restaurant still says its all puerto rican 😂)

Always walk out with over $50 worth of cuchifrito. Been going since 1983. The only Puerto Rican cuchifrito spot left now in the Beonx. Well worth the trip and the wait in line. Fantastic food. 🇵🇷🤗
