The food slection was small but what we had was very good. The location is around business. The restaurant itself is very simple but was clean.

About El New Yorican Puerto Rican Restaurant


El New Yorican Puerto Rican Restaurant's cooks fill their menu with authentic Puerto Rican recipes by way of the Bronx that drew effusive praise from the Phoenix New Times. New Times reporter Laura Hahnefeld describes owner Alberto Rivera’s penchant for chatting with new and returning guests as they dine on the _cocina criolla_––creole cooking––distinguished by influences from the mix of indigenous tribes, Spanish settlers, and African slaves who populated the island in centuries past.

One of the signature dishes is mofongo—a hearty serving of garlicky mashed plantains—which chef Haydee Sanchez demonstrated on COX 7. After deep-frying the plantains, Sanchez pulverizes them with garlic in a pilon, a Puerto Rican–style mortar and pestle, before centering the mixture on a plate and surrounding it with a moat of spiced shrimp or fried chicken to fend off vegetarian Gauls. Plantains can also be found twice-fried and served with garlic sauce as an appetizer, and fried pork chops, chicken stew, and shrimp with garlic or salsa criolla star on other dishes.
