Amigo's Deli

130 West St., Danbury, CT - (203) 790-7683
Posted By Rick Finkelstein on 3/19/2007 5:15:00 PM
My girlfriend and I eat here almost once a week because the portions are large and it only costs $6. The hot food station has wonderful stewed meats such as beef and short ribs (our favorites!) but they also serve chicken legs, pigs feet, tripe, and a few other items. Each meal comes with rice and beans.

The meat is stewed in a sauce and falls apart as you eat it. The sauces are never greasy or fatty; they have a lot of flavor. There are also two types of beans offered, brown and black, each cooked in a sauce to perfection. Three types of rice are offered: white, yellow and one with beans. I always choose the yellow rice; it's mixed with carrots and peas for some nice color. The rice tends to absorb the sauce from the meat and the beans, so the whole meal is wonderful.

For those who like it a bit hotter, Amigo's serves hot sauce to kick it up a bit.

It's the pork that makes this sandwich sing, for it is fresh-cut from a long-cooked roast and fairly radiates sweet-pig flavor.

A neighborhood grocery, cafe, and butcher shop, Amigo's is a friendly place frequented by locals, workmen, and visiting omnivores.

This was the pile of roast pork and sweet onions assembled to fit into my Cuban sandwich. Amigo's knife-and-fork meal of hot roast pork is a winner, too.

While all the usual North American sodas are available, I had to sample these two oddities: Goya malt beverage, made in Pennsylvania, and 'Tutifruti' soda, bottled in Mexico.

Roast pork, peppers and onions with yellow rice and beans: what a fine lunch!
