Choose Between Two Options

$25 for a three-course Puerto Rican dinner for two (up to a $53.71 total value)

  • Choice of two empanadas, alcapurrias, or salads (up to a $5.99 value each)
  • Two entrees (up to an $18.99 value each)

$45 for a three-course Puerto Rican dinner for four (up to a $107.42 total value)

  • Four entrees (up to an $18.99 value each)
  • Two desserts (up to a $3.75 value each)

Empanadas are little pastries stuffed with meat or melted cheese; alcapurrias showcase a similar concept, with ground beef ticked inside of fried yuca or green banana. Entrees include bistec encebollado, or steak marinated in adobo sauce, and camarones al ajillo, or shrimp sautéed in garlic and butter. Dinner entrees come with one side, such as rice, beans, or yuca. View the full menu.

El Rincon Tropical

At El Rincon Tropical, the sweet aroma of simmering plantains drifts through a lively dining room. Back in the kitchen, chefs marinate meats and seafood in garlic butter and nestle them beside mofongo balls—mashed and fried mounds of plantains or cassava. The restaurant's lauded Cuban sandwich earned it a mention in The Virginian-Pilot's Best of the Best 2012 as one of the best Cubano sandwiches in Hampton Roads. In addition to the cuisine, El Rincon Tropical pays homage to Puerto Rico with a colorful wall mural of Fort "El Morro" and tropical plants. Like the weather forecasts conch shells whisper in islanders’ ears, the eatery’s Latin music recalls tropical locales, and on Friday and Saturday evenings, the dining room transforms into a dance hall.

Reviews

staff is friendly (and willing to recommend/explain traditional dishes) I recommend the empanadas and the traditional dish of pork with rice and beans
