The TV tuned to Telemundo soaps and the family photos on the walls lend a touch of comfort, but the plastic tablecloths and bubbling fryers place this Puerto Rican casa firmly in greasy-spoon territory. One of the last vestiges of a rapidly disappearing Loisada, Adela’s offers hearty Boricua fare: Rich carne guisada, a slow-cooked beef stew, is served with rice and pink beans, and a mound of garlicky mofongo (a savory plantain mash) gets a coating of crunchy pork rinds. Come with an empty stomach: Overly generous portions see to it that no one leaves Adela’s house hungry.

This is a place that reminds you of Abuela's cooking back on the island. The food is true to it's Puerto Rican roots with every bite reminding you of the natural herbs and ingredients used back on the island.
