Puerto Rican restaurant El Encanto has re-opened for indoor dinning and has taken steps to keep its customers safe during COVID 19 .
Those that wish to stay home but enjoy good home cooked Puerto Rican food can now order thru GRUB HUB, DOORDASH and POSTMATES.
El Encanto is located at 2179 Niagara St. Buffalo, NY 14207 near the I-190 ramp.
El Encanto is a family restaurant, not a club, said George Mercado, a manager. His sister Melissa Morales is the owner, he said, and this is her first restaurant.
After years of cooking for family, events and catering, she was encouraged to share her talents with the community, Mercado said. "A few years later her dream came true, and she's making it a success."
The menu includes Puerto Rican standards like fried pork, pastelillos, chicken stew, mofongo (garlicky mashed plantains), Caribbean seafood salad and bacalaitos (codfish fritters).
Hours: 12 a.m.-8 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday 12 to 9pm Fridays and Saturday’s. Closed Sunday, Monday. Phone: 424-1891.
