La Kueva Brings Puerto Rican Cuisine to Hertel Ave

We unfortunately arrived 15 minutes before they closed. We were under the impression the restaurant was open until 10pm, but they close at 7pm Monday through Wednesday (9pm, Thursday through Saturday). Luckily, the woman behind the counter was still excited to have us inside the restaurant and let us order dinner. A couple of the menu items had been sold out (she mentioned they make everything fresh) but we were still able to enjoy several different dishes.

Our buddy Mac ordered the Fried Chicken ($8) which came out as two pieces, a drumstick and a breast. It looked like he had picked correctly that day, the skin was crispy and he told us the meat inside was very juicy. He also ordered their Sweet Plantains ($3) and they were fantastic…incredibly sweet and cooked just long enough to have a thin crispy exterior but still have a soft chew. I tried to eat as many pieces as I could, they were some of the best I’ve ever had. Mac has actually gone back to the restaurant since that visit so he could try their Roast Pork (they were out on our visit) and told me it was great.
