Amor Cubano

Located at 2018 3rd Ave. New York, Amor Cubano brings Latin food in an upscale setting to the El Barrio section of East Harlem. The menu adheres to Cuban favorites like vaca frita—shredded bits of steak fried with onions and copious amounts of garlic—and lechon asado, or roast pork, dripping with sour orange mojo sauce.

USE YOUR PESOS: In exchange for any denomination of pesos, Amor Cubano will offer a 10% discount (valid one per person, one per table, one per visit, with a maximum check of $200, and not valid with any other promotion)


La Fonda Boricua

La Fonda has been serving up homestyle Puerto Rican cooking for over two decades now in New York's East Harlem. But more than just great food, La Fonda has been offering visitors a place in Manhattan where art, music and food come together to create a unique cultural experience. Visit the restaurant at 169 East 106th Street, New York and try the delicious Puerto Rican cuisine!
