Brasitas--Stamford Style

Brasitas, no that is not Spanish for little bras...has two locations, one in Norwalk the other in Stamford. I make regular trips to the Bronx for my Spanish, Dominican and Puerto Rican food, but I need a local fix option in a bad way. I've heard Brasitas might be it. Or, it might actually be a restaurant on a corner in Norwalk or Stamford that has yet to be discovered. But, until I find that hidden gem, I am tryin' out Brasitas.

Arroz con pollo...does life get any better than this?

    I might have to work late, so I am opening a spot for someone else...if I can get out early enough, I will let you know and maybe there would be a spot for me. Thanks!

    I'm really sorry, but I'm coming down with the flu and need to stay in tonight (don't want to get anyone else sick either). Really sorry to miss this one, as it's one of my favorite places!

    Sometimes Spanish south of the border restaurants that are too far afield from what I grew up having in San Diego California are not my thing...I find their garnishes to be too sweet and not authentic at times or they fry all the food or put in spices that are not truly regional to the cooking. But, I liked Brasitas in this way...and didn't mind a sprinkle of mango everywhere or at least directly on the plate (something you don't have at home style Dominican and Puerto Rican restaurants.

    I went to Brasitas last night to check it out. Food is good. Not Bronx Dominican or Puerto Rican but Anglo Dominican/Puerto Rican with a commercial twist. Beer on tap was Modelo the sides were great and the meat entrees are really well done with great side garnishes. I had the pork loin and it came with a side of black beans with mango garnish and I ordered yellow rice on the side. Delish!

    The Stamford Brasita's is very good. My husband, who is Puerto Rican says that the owner's are Colombian. Don Coqui is excellent but the closest one is in New Rochelle; the portions are HUGE!!! Like they could feed 3-4 people, so this might make a good Meet Up for the group. There is an amazing place in Danbury called Los Amigos which is a deli/market/ lucheonette but the Food is fantatstic. My husband insisted on drving all the way from Norwalk to Danbury to pick up the Pernil and Arroz con Gandules from there for a party we had recently. It was delicious!!
