The search for authentic cuisine can be a treacherous journey full of lost recipes, watered-down dishes, and Emeril Lagasse's army of body doubles. Let the pros do the footwork with this Groupon.

Choose Between Two Options

  • $15 for $30 worth of Puerto Rican fare for dinner, valid after 5 p.m.
  • $10 for $20 worth of Puerto Rican fare for lunch, valid 11 a.m.–3 p.m.

The highlight of the menu is Borinquen's signature jibarito, which Esquire heralded as one of the best sandwiches in America ($6.95). Steak, chicken, or roasted pork reside between its two slices of fried green plantain coated in garlic sauce. Other items include salchichon soup with spiced, cured spanish pork sausage ($5.95) and garlic shrimp ($15.95).

Borinquen Restaurant

Beneath a patriotically hued royal-blue awning and red-brick exterior, Borinquen’s cooks stir fry and sauté up traditional Puerto Rican dishes from fresh ingredients. Diners can wrap their hands around a special delicacy, jibaritos, the eatery’s signature dish that sandwiches a guest’s choice of meat or veggies between two fried plantains instead of bread for a starchy, juicy Caribbean twist. The tropical fruit reappears in the popular alcapurrias, golden fritters filled with a blend of ground beef, taro root, and green banana. Between bites, patrons sip a drink from the eclectic beverage menu, which boasts everything from passion-fruit and tamarind juice to café con leche.
