PuertoRican in Chicago?
Anywhere, by chance, to get pasteles or other authentic PR cuisine?
My research shows the following Puertorican restaurants;
La Cocina de Galarza (same as La Cocina Criolla)
Cafe Bolero (cuban but sells pasteles and empanadas)
May St Cafe
Can anyone vouch for any of these?
I am specifically looking for pasteles and empanadas
May St Café- is pretty good Nuevo Latino no pasteles
Coco-. Nuevo Latino w/ Puerto Rican influence (great live music and dancing.)
Café Bolero- Good cuban I also like Café LaGuardia
Café Calao-- great bakery and café shop excellent café con leche
Rumba – Nuevo Latino and some emapanadas (no pasteles )
La Bruquena-- not fancy but yes you will find great no frills traditional Puerto Ricans dishes, pasteles, empanadas, bacalaitos, alcapurrias, relleons, lechon….
Borinquen Restaurant – also not fancy but authentic Puerto Rican dishes indeed-- try the Jibarito
Sabor Latino- Easy take-out-- pasteles
