An Afternoon at El Coqui

Posted By on Thu, Jan 28, 2010 at 5:32 PM

El Coqui, the new Puerto Rican restaurant at 5443 E. 22nd St., is open for business. We just stopped in for a Malta India, some tostones rellenos (yummy stuffed and fried plantains) and a little private chair dancing to some wonderful hip-shaking music that had a few other heads in the place bobbing along too.

The place just opened, so don't expect seamless service. They were still trying to get the cash registers to work properly today. That said, we were treated like royalty. One employee, who wasn't even waiting on us, even took a few minutes to explain the use of plantains in Puerto Rican food and how our dish was prepared. What a guy!

Hours are 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., Tuesday through Sunday. Call 790-5357 for more information.
