Village Voice's Description

We're never quite sure which of the women behind the counter is Elsa. What is certain, though, is that she's queen of the chicharrones, twice-cooked pork ribs that alternate layers of crisp skin, rich fat, and tantalizingly fibrous meat. Your only other choice at this new carryout-which has a few counter seats if you just can't wait to gnaw on a couple of ribs-is longaniza, a thin oregano-laced sausage. Sides include boiled plantains and yuca, fried white sweet potato, and pink pickled onion. Oh, and this being a Dominican joint, there's also an assortment of plastic-wrapped cassava breads.

    There's no disputing that Elsa is the reigning Queen of Fried Pork Rinds, and she sits on her throne dispensing strips of pork belly, skin intact, which fry up greasy and supremely crisp.
