You can’t open a Latin-Caribbean restaurant in this town and expect to succeed without affording the esteemed Cuban sandwich a prominent place on the menu. Chabela’s, in the East Village, has done just that. The rest of the menu, though, skews toward the homestyle cooking of one of the owners’ Dominican mother-in-law and includes dishes like: guinea hen guisada (guinea hen stew), mondongo (tripe soup), berengena guisada (eggplant stew), and chuletas (fried pork chops). For breakfast, there’s the mashed green plantain dish known as mangu served in the traditional manner with eggs, sausage, and fried cheese.
