Unless you live in Alphabet City or actively seek out Puerto Rican food, you’ve probably never heard of Casa Adela. But this little place has been open for decades (since 1976, according to the words painted on their window). Come here for rotisserie chicken, rice & beans, and pernil. Pernil is Puerto-Rican-style pork shoulder, and it won’t be bad. Two things you should keep in mind are that these guys are cash only and BYOB.
