The tables are always full at this Dominican diner in the Bronx. It could be the colorful mural that spans the back wall that puts everyone—staff and patrons alike—in such a good mood, or it could be the tropical fruit shakes, plantain-mashed mofongo studded with crispy pork rind, or one of the succulent chickens turning on spits in the front window (a nicely blackened skin and cilantro dipping sauce make this a signature dish). Cow’s feet soup is so delicious you’ll be sucking the trotters dry, and a rich and salty codfish stew can make you believe you’ve popped down to Santo Domingo for a night. Luckily, dinner here is a lot cheaper than a plane ticket—generous mains go for about $12.
