Restaurante Y Panaderia Guatemalteco is a Guatemalan spot in Communipaw with a bakery and counter-service, primarily takeout restaurant. In the summer, get a huge cup of ceviche from the reach-in fridge, or if you want something hot, try the chicken stewed with tomatoes. The tender meat pulls apart as soon as you poke it with a fork, and it’s served with a big portion of rice and beans, all for $7.

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.
