Dominican Sweets Street Vendor on East Kingsbridge Rd In The Bronx

NewYorkNewHaven | Jan 23, 201301:02 PM    

Hey guys,

When I stumbled upon this lady with a small plastic table next to her fritura cart, I wasn't expecting much. I tried some corn pudding, found it good, and decided to come back.

I'm glad I did; I ended up writing about the vendor in my column last week. I also felt like it was very much a Chowhound type of place, so I wanted to share it with you all here.

I really enjoyed the sweet potato cake, flavored quite like our pumpkin pie, as well as the cinnamon-heavy rice pudding. More interesting, but less tasty, was her gandules con dulce: pigeon peas made sweet, with chunks of submerged yucca. I can't say I liked it as the flavor reminded me of less successful Cambodian desserts I've had that make use of savory ingredients. In any case, it's interesting. Perhaps some of you are more inclined towards this sort of thing.

Don't go out of your way, unless you're a fiend for sweet potato cake, but certainly pick something up when you're in the neighborhood.
