188 Bakery Cuchifritos


This Bronx bakery and counter-service diner is hard to miss. The outside is adorned in neon lights and colorful letters, which sets the tone for the upbeat and busy vibe inside. Cuchifritos (a Spanish word referring to fried foods) specializes in Puerto Rican and Dominican Republic dishes, particularly pork dishes like chicharróns and pernil. The large, colorful menu is posted on boards covering the walls inside. It’s all in Spanish, so if you have an elementary-school knowledge of the language, just point. Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner here, the space always has a crowd.
