Village Voice's Description
El Nuevo Bohio ("The New Shack") is a picture-perfect palace of pig, a real Puerto Rican lechonera. The front window says it all, featuring a tumble of bronzed pork shoulders. The pig wrangler cuts up your portion--whether it be a half-pound ($3.50), a pound, or a platter that also features fried or boiled plantains and a perfunctory salad-with complete unanimity, carefully giving you some fat, some lean, and a good crunchy swatch of skin or two. At your request, he also ladles on a garlic sauce that will sting your lips without benefit of chiles. The double dining room is comfortable, and the full Puerto Rican menu is available therein.
Tips from foursquare
Come in for succulent, authentic Puerto Rican cuisine at highly affordable prices. At $5.30 per serving, the roast pork is a must try.
The customer service is slow and the food is typical puertorican food but it's still good. Don't go out of your way to come, just come when you're in the area.
"Try the roasted pork plate ($7), served with a plate of tostones (fried green plantain), as men with machetes hack away at whole pigs behind the counter."
The best price for catering and they serve a lot. Good food all the time.
Typical Puerto Rican resturant, food is great!!! The arroz con gandules & pernil is a fav.
