On the latest episode of Dining on a Dime: New York City, cheap eats expert Lucas Peterson heads uptown to East Harlem. There, he discovers El Caribeño, a restaurant that specializes in Latin American cuisine. Peterson chit chats with his server, who is from the Dominican Republic, to get recommendations on the best dishes on the menu. He tries some iconic Dominican and Puerto Rican dishes, each better than the last: Pollo rostizado; Pernil, a slow-roasted pork; and arroz con habichuelas, stewed Dominican beans. It's a glimpse at Latin homestyle cooking off the beaten path.
