What you see in Sunset Park, Brooklyn: Cuchifritos

Pasteles , originally uploaded by Buendia Productions.
Cuchifritos (koo-chee-free-tohs) :refers to various fried foods prepared principally for a quick eat, in Puerto Rican and Dominican cuisine. They include a variety of dishes including but not limited to bacalaitos (cod fish empanadas), morcilla (sausage), rellenas de papas (fried mashed potato stuffed with chopped and seasoned meat), chicharron (fried pork rind), and various other quick usually fried snacks. Cuchifritos vendors also typically serve juices and drinks such as passion fruit, pineapple, limeade and coconut juice/milk, as well as ajonjolĂ­, a drink made from sesame seeds.

By the way... if you are a graphic designer, they are looking for help on the site.

What you see in Sunset Park, Brooklyn: Checkered Cab

Well, there is something you don't see everyday (anymore). Buendia Productions caught a great shot of an old checkered cab on 5th. You know, the kind with the little seats that pull up from the floor. These cabs are no longer in service but the memory will always stay.
