Here is the yelp Review and Pictures

In a hood full of Mexican and Colombian eateries, I Love Py might just be the only place along Greenpoint Ave that specializes in Paraguayan food.

It's easily a 4 or 5 star restaurant, with an simple menu and friendly service, it is certainly among the best and surprisingly less known establishments in Sunnyside.

While I've sampled a fair share of Latin food from various countries / regional cuisines, I've yet to step into Paraguay or try its food. If I Love Py is any indication of how it really is, then our lovely city could use a lot more places like this. Cafe-like yet homey,  the fun and colorful decor is festive. One can get a sense of the level of national pride  here, as Paraguayan memorabilia adorns the walls and even the flag hangs prominently near the center of the restaurant.

Unless you've got an allergy to corn, the chipa guazu ($3) is definitely a dish worth trying.

A popular side dish in Paraguay, this creamy corn cake is wonderfully cheesy yet filling. Most everyone loves croquettes (croquetas) and empanadas, both of which are things I Love Py does extremely well. The empanadas peruanas ($3) are very tasty as are the empanadas de choclo ($3).

Want more traditional dishes? Try the Sopa Paraguaya ($3), which is literally "Paraguayan Soup" but is in fact a non-creamier version of the chipa guazu, more akin to Paraguayan corn bread if anything.

For actual soups, shoot for some vori vori ($4), a tasty, aromatic chicken soup that despite its strong flavor, seems like a great herbal / healthy choice. If there is anything to avoid, I'm not a fan of the chipa style donut, which is great when fresh out the oven, but hard as a brick at room temperature.

I Love Py is one of the rare gems of Queens and I hope many folks are able to come by and give it a shot. The menu isn't vast, just a collection of simple dishes and small plates, enjoyable from start to finish with quaint service to boot. And while most places like this are cash only,
