    Oddly enough, I don't think there's any puerto rican food in Port Chester. At least I'm not aware. In Stamford, I'm not aware of any either. There's Dominican, but that's all I'm aware of between Stamford and Port Chester.

      If you are willing to travel a bit outside of Stamford head to East Main Street in Bridgeport.....Ramirez Restaurant or Marrero Restaurant for starters.

      And for true old school Connecticut Boricua flavor you should visit Frog Hollow in Hartford.

          I would suggest you start at Marrero Restaurant on East Main Street.
          Get the mofongo if they have it....chicken stew is also good.

            That sounds like a good start, we went to a Puerto Rician place in Norwalk for the second time and I had this Pork Kabab with pork, onions, plaintains, and peppers, very tasy and good, a chicken empanda very good and my hubby had chicken plate with beans and rice, well cooked, clean food and very decent. It is right across from Vet's Park next to a fishing store.

                I don't now the name sorry but as I stated right across from the Vets Park. Check it out again and tell me what you like or not. Take it easy

        The new restaurant, Don Coqui, that took over for McMenamins in New Rochelle is suppose to be Carribean and Puerto Rican. Haven't been yet.
