Patties of Yucca

Moro de Guandules con Coco

Pigeon peas and rice cooked with vegetables in a coconut milk broth

Puercol/Pollo Asasdo

lt's an absolute must-have for the holidays in the Caribbean (for Dominicans, Puerto Ricans, and Cubans). Slow roasted in olive oil, white wine vinegar, garlic, oregano, lime juice, salt, and pepper.

Pasteles en Hoja

The Carribean’s version of the Mexican “Tamal,” made from root vegetables.

Ensalada Rusa

(Russian Salad)-potatoes, peas, carrots, egg and a little mayonnaise.


The "Coquito." If you like coconut, you’ll love this! It's a thick and creamy (like melted ice-cream) drink that mixes coconut milk with sweet cream of coconut, almond milk, cinnamon and rum. This rich, authentic recipe is a tradition during Christmas in the Caribbean. Served over ice, with a large cinnamon stick.

Emilio was a great host! We had a lovely evening. Emilio is the most interesting person..We felt at home right away like we were sitting with a long time friend.

The empanadas and the other guests were the highlight of the event at Emillio's! However, the atmosphere was a bit odd (Emillio would occasionally make off-color or offensive comments). We overall had a great evening, but that was more because of the quality of the other guests rather than Emillio's hosting, which sometimes put us off. Unfortunately, I would not recommend or book again.

Superb dining experience. Emillio is a fabulous host with an extensive set of skills and stories to share. Our little family of 3 really enjoyed the evening.

We had a great meal at Emillio's! His home was lovely and very comfortable for my group, and he made us feel very welcome. The food was amazing and he was able to accommodate various dietary restrictions. He surprised me with the best gluten free cupcakes I've eaten to date for my birthday! Highly recommend this experience for an intimate dinner.
