This neighborhood Puerto Rican eatery in Alphabet City has been open since 1976 and is famous across all five boroughs for their signature homestyle cooking. Its beloved founder and matriarch, Adela Fargas, passed away in 2018 at 81 years old, and since then, her family has continued to run Casa Adela in her legacy. Popular items include the mofongo (fried crushed plantains made with garlic and pork crackling); tostones; and chicharron de pollo (chicken crackling served with rice and beans). A Lower East Side institution, the specialty at Casa Adela is rotisserie chicken. Authentic PR food in an unpretentious environment, serving rice and beans even your PR mother will approve.
