El Viejo Yayo Restaurant Brooklyn, NY

I consider myself a foodie and although I haven’t been to even a quarter of the restaurants in NYC, I try to visit a new place each time I plan to eat out.  Of course if a place is good I definitely go back! A little while ago my bestie invited me out to El Viejo Yayo restaurant and I was happy to go. I tend to check out the menu before I ever go anywhere and it seemed promising– reasonably priced food, diverse options; I was sold. El Viejo Yayo has Latin American cuisine– which is of course relatively broad–mainly focused on Puerto Rican and Dominican cuisine. It has a prime location, steps away from the Barclay’s Center, on 5th Ave between Dean & Bergen and is near a ton of trains and buses. The curb appeal isn’t breathtaking and the décor isn’t super special. It’s definitely a more casual spot but you wouldn’t…
