Ada's Latin Flavor

Recommended Posts

Stopped at Ada's Latin Flavor on Broadway and 5th St. in Long Branch for lunch a couple weeks ago and had one of the best Cubano sandwiches in a couple years. Judging from the roast pork in the Cubano, I'd have to bet that the Pernil is excellent too.

Small, clean and brightly lit, this little Dominican gem is a valued addition to the downtown Long Branch area. Empanadas, Mofungo & tostones. Grilled sandwiches incluting Cubanos, Steak and Chicken Breast.

Service was good and I had a nice chat with Ada, the owner. How an Ethiopian American accountant ends up running a Dominican restaurant may be improbable, but I'm glad that's how it worked out.

Since then I've had the Pork Rib with Garlic sauce special, and the Bacalao with red paprika sauce. Also have enjoyed the beef empanadas and tostones.

Looking forward to working my way through the rest of the menu...

You're right...the Pernil IS excellent! :biggrin:

Thanks for letting the rest of us know about Ada's! Great spot!
