Puerto Rican Pasteles in the Bronx?
I am looking for a restaurant that serves Puerto Rican style Pasteles, which is a holiday pork dish made with bannanas and yautía and wrapped in bannana leaves and paper. I live in California and I leave on Monday. I am staying in the Bronx but will gladly travel if anyone knows of a good restaurant. I am craving that food!
Hands down you need to take a trip to East Harlem and go to La Fonda Boricua. I haven't had their pasteles, because in my opinion, I refuse to pay for what I get get from my mom. However, everything else I have had from them tastes like it came from my mom's kitchen. It's on East 106th street between Lex and Third.
