Puerto Rican pub fare

The menu at Camaradas El Barrio features traditional Puerto Rican cuchifrito favorites, such as alcapurrias, which are patties made of yuca or green bananas and filled with ground sirloin and pastelillos also known as empanadas, which we stuff with ground sirloin or chicken. Our chuchifritos also share space on our menu with more traditional pub fare items; such as fresh cut fries, quesadillas, sliders and our well-known barrio burger.

At Camaradas we like to think that we invented the term Puerto Rican pub fare. Our culinary philosophy has always been to keep it simple and fresh.

Through out the years several favorites have emerged and customers come from far and wide for our Jibaro Sandwich, the anchor of our menu. The distinguishing feature of this sandwich is that there is no bread.  Instead two tostones incase the ingredients, which include; our slow cooked, succulent pernil (pork shoulder,) greens, plumb tomatoes and our Camaradas sauce for dressing. If you have pork issues one can order it with grilled chicken or go vegetarian with just plumb tomatoes and avocado.

If you desire something more filling then we suggest our customers try our mofongo relleno. Brought to the Caribbean by our African ancestors, most likely Ghana where they cook a similar dish called Fufu, the mofongo relleno is a self-contained meal of plantains, garlic, pernil and pork crackling. Once again, if you’re staying away from pork for dietary or religious reasons then one can choose chicken as the filling or our vegetarian option.

Our menu also has an option for groups who want a little of this and a little of that and for them we have our popular Camaradas’ platter, which includes: tostones (yuca or green plantain), chicharrón de pollo, alcapurrias, pastelillos and dipping sauces (garlic mojito and Camaradas’ Sauce).
