El Barrio Restaurant Fondita – Spanish Food Spanish Harlem
El Barrio Restaurant
155 E 110th @ Lexington
Just outside of the 110 #6 Train Subway entrance.
Welcome to my Barrio. Something that I can’t get enough of is the great selection of affordable Spanish cuisine up in Spanish Harlem. You can get great homemade dishes for cheap and they taste amazing. Such is the case with El Barrio Restaurant Fondita. Despite the countertop and stools in the small space of El Barrio, you actually feel like you’re more inside of mama’s kitchen vs. in a restaurant. She’s got a long table top filled with delicious chicken and pork – some stewed some baked. Beans and yellow rice also stand by ready to be doled out. You can get a medium (which is actually quite large for 2 people) for just $3.50. Really hungry? Upgrade to the mammoth $5.00 and you get even more. A much better deal than I got down at Pedros Tacos in DUMBO. This is a great and convenient restaurant that is just steps away from the subway entrance. Come up to my Barrio and enjoy anytime!
