After ten-plus visits to this Dominican cafe I've learned two things. Get the rice dishes and get the stew, especially the pork ribs. More

Where Do You Get Chicharonnes in the Bronx?

Bronx Eats Chris E. Crowley Post a comment

In the Bronx, chicharrones abound, found in any number of Dominican and Puerto Rican diners, at more ambitious bodegas, and in a number of taquerias and pupuserias. But coming across a great Dominican-style chicharron, which calls for the whole belly to be fried for something that is at once crunchy and moist? Well, it's not the easiest thing to do. More

Bronx Eats Chris E. Crowley 2 comments

There is an exemplary fried rice called chaulafan to be found in Mott Haven at the Ecuadorian restaurant Luchos Barrios, but to my taste the best fried rice in the Bronx is farther north. It is at Sabrosura, the Parkchester staple billed by its owners as an "American-Born Chinese Dominican Eatery." More

Bronx Eats: Serviceable Dominican Breakfast at Delmy, Mott Haven

Breakfast Chris E. Crowley 3 comments

I've been fascinated by the look of Delmy Deli & Juice Bar for months, its outdated and unkempt diner appearance a paragon of commercial 149th Street. The Dominican food served there isn't a destination by any means, but you can get a decent breakfast of plantains, salami, eggs, and fried cheese—all for six bucks. More

Bronx Eats: A Few Steps from Yankee Stadium, Pernil Sandwich and Tostones at Molino Rojo

Bronx Eats Chris E. Crowley Post a comment

The food at Molino Rojo, a Dominican steamtable conveniently located right off the 161st Street stop, won't blow you away. But you will leave satisfied, so long as you order right. And for those running late to the game, for whom a diversion up to Nano Billiards would prove too time consuming, Molino offers a decent alternative. More

Bronx Eats Chris E. Crowley 3 comments

There's a street vendor on East Kingsbridge Road selling some expected fried items, but a far better option is one of her sweets: moist and dense sweet potato cake, creamy corn pudding, and more. More

Bronx Eats: Sancocho Saves the Day at El Economico, Marble Hill

Bronx Eats Chris E. Crowley 4 comments

Though roast chicken and rice and beans are busts at this Bronx dive, the sanchocho—a starchy soup full of potatoes and yuca—make for a surprisingly successful meal. More

Bronx Eats: Mangu at the Pioneer Supermarket, Allerton

Chris E. Crowley 2 comments

The Bronx is a borough of hidden treasures, a place where you can find an unadorned street cart selling Jamaican fusion in the shadow of Yankee Stadium and the longest-running kosher deli in the city. So in another sense, Pioneer Supermarket on Allerton Avenue wouldn't normally grab your attention—but it's one of the borough's many culinary surprises. More

Chris E. Crowley 3 comments

When it comes to the Bronx, everyone talks about Arthur Avenue. But few know that there are some tasty options for munching near the Bronx Zoo—aside from the standard, often underwhelming Italian-American sit-downs over in Fordham-Belmont.

So if you're heading up to the Bronx to hang with the gorillas and the giraffes this summer, make sure to check out our guide to what's worth eating close by first. More
