El Negro De Oro – Hamilton, NJ
This place is a GEM!!! What a find if you have already been eating here, and to everyone else, you need to go ASAP. This is a family run operation serving Ecuadorian cuisine that really hit it out of the park. I started the meal out with the Tostones Rellenos con Hornado that were AMAZING. Delicious pulled pork piled high on a fried plantain topped with marinated red onions and a little salsa. Then the Bandeja Al Negro De Oro which is shrimp, beef, and chicken sautéed in a light cream sauce served with rice, sweet plantains, and salad. This cream sauce was SOOOOOO good. This was quite a surprise and really a flavor explosion in every bite. Also had the Chaulafan with is Ecuadorian fried rice with shrimp, beef, pork, eggs, chicken, and soy sauce. The level of deliciousness that this place is putting out is amazing and the service was so friendly and made me feel at home. I don’t know how I have not heard of this place, but it is on my radar now and I will certainly be back to try more on the menu.
