I SPY: Bronx-ing It

Jun 8, 2015

What do you do when you go to the Bronx?  Watch a Yankees game or go to the zoo?  Usually yes!  That would've been nice…however NOPE we were there for my big guys soccer game yesterday.

They lost 4 - 7.  BOO.  However, my dude made 3 goals in the last 20 minutes.  It was quite an epic MVP (Most Valuable Player) moment for him!  WOOHOO, he's the man.

After the game instead of sitting in Sunday traffic on the way home we decided to eat dinner in the hood.  Found this Anthony Bourdain recommended Puerto Rican / Dominican hole in the wall joint CUCHIFRITOS. A packed, old school, counter top style place with an extensive menu all in Spanish.  You know it's authentic when you can't read the menu!




Ordered the basics you can't go wrong with: rice, beans, sweet plantains, mofongo, BBQ chicken, beef stew, & chicharron.  Saw many people eating some soup dish that must be popular.  But embarrassed to order more because the lady kept telling me when I was ordering 'Mami too much!!!'  HA.



We loved it, and they loved watching me and the boys pig out.  They kept asking 'You like?'  Hell yeah!  Especially that chicharron is a MUST.



Got to go back with a Spanish person to try the more authentic dishes.  The real deal!
