This place has been a institution of Chin-Latino food on the upper west side since the 1960’s.  Do not let the looks of the place scare you away as a take out joint only.  (Although most residents in the neighborhood do)


The day I ate there, Singer, Actor, Politician Ruben Blades was eating with some friends and the line was out the door waiting for people to get their take out.


As I sat down and placed my order – I was astonished how fast the food came – I did not know if this food was already made and they just micro waved it – but I did not complain – I came with an appetite and I was not disappointed.


I started with a wonton soup – watch out – it’s a huge serving (for delivery they make a small one for you).  I proceeded to order the Pepper steak with yellow rice and black beans – YUMMY!!!!!!!! – My friend ordered the Fried pork chops with fried rice – and the avocado salad - food was great – and the price was even better!!!!!!!


Not a place to take a date – but if you are around the neighborhood and are looking for great food and you are on a budget – this is the place for you – its worth taking some home.


please note: No credit cards
