Batista's Puerto Rican - Keansburg NJ

Stopped for take-out dinner. Brand new establishment, we were there on their second day of business. It's a small place with about 4 tables. Very friendly bustling neighborhood place.

This is soulful heavy comfort food. The older mother and father do the cooking. The son works the counter. We got stewed chicken and roast pork. Entries come with rice and beans, but we opted for yellow rice with pigeon peas. And a "pastillone" (sp?), a sort of frittata made of plantain, ground beef, and egg. All food very tasty. Glad to have this place near our home.

We didn't get dessert. I saw tres leches cake, cheesecake, and guava pastries. All house-made.
