Paletas in Sunset Park

There have been quite a few posts on this topic but I just found a place that will special order hard-to-find or even easy-to-find paletas for you. The place is El Paisano Deli --- spoke to the owner tonight and it's actually a few months away from becoming a full-fledged sit down restaurant -- on 4324 4th Ave in Sunset Park.

The owner is getting me 24 cucumber and chile and 24 tamarind and chile paletas. Just go in and ask and he'll take your phone number and call you when he's able to get them .

Also, if you're hungry, I've had the tortas there and they are outstanding! Highly recommended.

  1. I have been craving paletas! Do they have them regularly or is it special order only?

      the deli/sandwich place between 39th and 4th on 5th has been a reliable paletas vendor for some time now. They also have great freshly made potato chips and popcorn (and killer tortas in the back, too).
