Some places, you will most likely never know about unless you happen to work in the area. El Sabroso is one such spot, and you’ll find it behind a freight entrance on the ground-floor of a large building on 37th Street. It’s open from 7am to 5pm, and it’s there to serve a good, affordable lunch when you need something better than whatever brown-paper-bag thing you were planning on eating at your desk. The food is Ecuadorian, and your meal will most likely consist of some kind of protein (pork, oxtail, goat, etc.) over rice with a side of beans. There are also a few seats in the plain, industrial-feeling space, if you need to eat your roast pork away from your workplace.
