With Los Janquis back in action, you may be looking for the best things to eat near Yankee stadium. Don't worry: we have you covered. But for right now let's talk about one more good morsel.
That pernil is pretty good by Bronx standards, the best you'll find in walking distance of the stadium, but their Chicharrones de Cerdo Estilo Domincano ($9.50) are even better. They're the best fried pork bits you'll find in the borough.
Ask nicely for the fatty bits—it's worth the cardiac collateral for extra-moist meat and creamy fat beneath the craggly crust that's well cooked but not fried into oblivion. They're generously porcine and need nothing more than a squeeze of lemon or lime, though if you want to get creative, request a hero roll and a side of the diner's mojo sauce for a DIY sandwich.
If you're looking for a side order, go fried-on-fried with a plate of Tostones, smashed, double-fried plantains, which are a better bet than the mushy, bland rice and beans. But all you really need to wash this pork down is an ice cold Presidente, or whatever overpriced brew the ballpark is offering.
