Inwood Update: Fresh, Cheap, Hearty Dominican

Inwood’s International Food House lays out an unusually fresh buffet of hearty Dominican chow, reports JackS. Highlights include roast pork with crispy, sticky skin and decent rotisserie chicken, good but perhaps a step below other neighborhood favorites like Malecon. Staples–soupy beans and fluffy yellow rice–are reassuringly solid. The ever-changing spread might also feature stews, fish and shrimp dishes, fried plantains, and mofongo. (International Food House is connected with Albert’s Mofongo House, around the corner on Broadway.)

susiec80 recommends roast chicken at La Galeria, which also rolls out a cheap steam table spread of stews, roasts, steaks, seafood, asopao (rice soups), and more. Budget-priced family combos (e.g., four pork chops, rice, beans, salad, two-liter soft drink) are $11 to $20.
