Unless you live in Alphabet City or actively seek out Puerto Rican food, you’ve probably never heard of Casa Adela. But this little place has been open for decades (since 1976, according to the words painted on their window). Come here for rotisserie chicken, rice & beans, and pernil. Pernil is Puerto-Rican-style pork shoulder, and it won’t be bad. Two things you should keep in mind are that these guys are cash only and BYOB.

La Isla Cuchifritos
We love La Isla Cuchifritos for the fact that a) it’s cheap and delicious, and b) it sort of feels like you’re grubbing in tropical Puerto Rico rather than not-so-tropical Brooklyn.
Reasons to visit Coppelia? It's cheap, it's open 24 hours, and for a diner, it's pretty good. Good enough.
Caracas Arepa Bar
Caracas takes pride in serving the most authentic Venezuelan food in the city. Who are we to disagree? This is by far and away the best Venezuelan restaurant we’ve been to. It’s also the only Venezuelan place we’ve been to.
