Today’s takeout lunch: chicken (muslo de pollo al horno) with
yellow rice and beans. If it comes in a round foil container, it must be lunch.
It’s raining, so I went to the nearby Dominican restaurant for
takeout, instead of to the Guineans on 116th or the Ivoirians on 125th.
This particular Resto Tropical (yeah, I know, every Spanish restaurant
is either Caridad or Tropical) gets a steady lunchtime crowd; the
rotisserie chicken with rice (pictured above) or chicken with salad is
a steal for $5 or $4 respectively.
