On my lifelong journey through culinary explorations, there is one place I must visit every time I'm in New York City, Cafecito!
The reason being that they serve generous dishes with the authentic flavors of creole Cuban cuisine.
I have been stoping by Cafecito since they opened in 2003 and have never been disappointed or dissatisfied!
They have a 'secret' menu that the constantly change and my latest encounter & newest obsession in it is the Pork Shank!
Deliciously roasted to perfection, the meat falls of the bone with a delicious sauce that makes you want to lick the plate. It served with rice and beans and sweet plantains which can be switched for tostones, which I often do.
Next time you're in the area, stop by and give it a try, you'll be very happy.
