Brooklyn Dominican

I asked this question a few months back and got a big fat goose egg in response, so I'm gonna try again. Where are people's favoriet Dominican/Cuban/Bourinquen restaurants in Bklyn? Preferably South or Central Bklyn.

  1. El Enquentro 2 on 6th Ave and 14th street is a great place to satisfy that ol' cravin'. Close to where I live too.

    1. El Enquentro is pretty good. You really need to go to Washington Heights though. For Cuban.... I know a Cuban place.... Ah yeah! Ok, it's tiny, I forgot the name, but it's on 86th St right after the highway underpass. Across from the Blockbuster. Literally across from the PC Richards or whatever it is and the crap furniture store. She's got some good chicken and sandwiches. Cheap too.

      1. I'm a fan of El Gran Castillo de Jagua, my "neighborhood melting pot" on Flatbush & 7th, right up from the subway.

          Jagua sounds pretty good, not too far a walk from us either. There was another little hole in the wall near there with a small outside patio that I haven't been able to find again. They may have closed, that was a few years ago. I like El Papasito's in Manhattan on 52nd Street betw 8th and 9th ave. Cute little place with tasty food.

        2. Not sure how good the food is, but I've had a perfect cup of cafe con leche at Cafe Yayo on 5th Ave. & 9th St. recently. The place is Dominican...

            I've had take out from there and thought it was ok. Definitely not as good as El Enquentro, which is only a few blocks away.
