Chicharron Salad in the Middle of the Night

Chicharron Salad
Oh, it's possible. Chicharrons in salad. Chicharrons are Latin American fried pork rinds, and I can think of no better place to put them. Neither can Coppelia, the new Cuban diner open on 14th Street. Recently a few friends and I found ourselves STARVING after an event, and Coppelia saved our lives with something delicious to eat.

I had already heard that their nachos are supremely awesome, and was fully prepared to get those when we sat down. But then I saw the salad: the chicharrons, avocado, blue cheese, peppers, and, one of my latest favorite salad toppings, a fried egg. Delicious and decadent without stuffing myself to the gills late at night. Had I been under the influence, I might have gone heavier, but this was just perfect. I'll be stopping back soon!

Coppelia is one of my favorite new restaurants in NYC. I went for the opening and have been back several times. I love the stick to your ribs food and the wonderful desserts by pastry master Pichet Ong!
