If you’re having trouble sleeping, get a large portion of crispy fried pork with a side of moro de habichuelas from the Inwood location of Elsa la Reina del Chicharron. The portions of crispy fried pork here are big and sedative enough to qualify as an efficient alternative to melatonin. There are a few tables inside, and we recommend bringing at least one friend to support you emotionally after you finish your plate and realize that you’re too full to function.
