You can get your entree with either mangu (mashed plantain) or cassava. I pass on the cassava, too bland for me, but I'll take mangu with pickled red onions over mashed potatoes any day. For maximum protein I recommend the Tuesday pork chops.

Don't know anything about Dominican food but I'm enough of a foodie to recognize when a quickie takeout place is run by a serious chef. Pork ribs that fall off the bone with just the right amount of sauce. Perfectly fried items like the cassava fritters. Even the eggs at breakfast come out looking better than at the average diner. I've encountered some smaller than expected portions of meat and I don't understand why they give you a container of green sauce that's nearly empty (evaporation?). But otherwise Mangu is impressive.

Being Dominican I crave it some times for lunch! Glad I found this gem. The mangu is great & the rotisserie chicken is so flavorful. Will definitely be back!

I was so excited to see that a Dominican restaurant was opening up in the neighborhood. I must say that I was disappointed. The portion of the food is so small compared to other Dominican restaurants. Also, they gave me a huge amount of rice and a tiny scoop of meat and of my other side. What a money saver since rice is cheap for them to cook :(
