    The roast chicken was one of my favorites! One Thanksgiving I had about 15 guests. Instead of roasting a turkey, I ordered chicken (with the spicy sauce) from Eddie. Everyone loved it! Of course, I also encouraged people to try the boliche, the pollo salteado, the ropa vieja and the flan.

    I live in Greece. My friend invited me to eat at La Rosita when I was in New York about 10 years ago. When I saw it the first time, I wasn’t sure. It seemed different from other New York restaurants. It was busy and there were lots of people. But I tried it anyway and it was very good. I come to New York every year, and we always go to La Rosita. Eddie gave us some good ideas when we were planning a trip to Puerto Rico too. Or was it Miami?

    I came to La Rosita about 15 years ago with a Cuban friend. He was very impressed with the selection of fresh fruit drinks. I think he ordered “mamey”.

    Fried sweet plantains and arrepas. YUM

    My usual – two eggs over easy over yellow rice with black beans, with a plate of fried sweet plantains on the side. And the cafe con leche… I’ve been away from New York for several years now, but I always remember La Rosita fondly, and am sad to hear that it is going!

    And the roast chicken was always delicious too!

    My personal morning favorite has always been cafĂ© con leche with toast, scrambled eggs, white rice, black beans, and bacon. However, I recently discovered the irresistable and delicious arepas, which I now have with eggs and bacon. Maybe I’ll have platanos next time as well.

    For dinner I have always found the ropa vieja fantastic but tonight I tried the chuletas de cerdo, with black beans and white rice, and was thrilled by its succulence.

    I am hoping to get there in a day or two to try a cubano sandwich!

    I love Enrique and Eddy and all the waitresses.

    I cannot imagine how our neighborhood will exist without La Rosita!

    My best wishes to each of you for new beginnings in 2007.

    Hands down, the chicharrones de pollo, sometimes with sweet plantains, sometimes with yellow rice and black beans. A mango or papaya batido to wash it down and, really, that was all the food anyone would need to get through an entire day. I really loved the Cubano sandwiches too. I arrived in NYC a pretty unadventurous eater; La Rosita helped open my palate to the many strange and wonderful foods of the world. Thanks so much for the many, many, many thousands of calories!
