This is a counter-service Dominican spot with locations in Manhattan, New Jersey, and The Bronx that, as you might have guessed, serves incredible chicharron. Everything on the menu here is in Spanish, but even if you don’t speak the language, all you need to know is that you want the chicharron, which goes for $15 per pound. From there, just point at whatever looks good behind the counter, like fried plantains, rice, and mofongo.
