The Last Cuban-Chinese Restaurant in NYC



La Caridad 78 is a restaurant on the corner of 78th Street and Broadway in New York City’s Upper West Side. The name is Spanish, yet the restaurant itself resembles a classic NY Chinese eatery. What’s the deal? Well, thousands of Chinese workers came to Cuba in the 19th and 20th centuries, but fled Havana’s thriving Chinatown when Castro came to power. Some of those folks came to New York. Some of *those* folks started restaurants, and, well, La Caridad 78 has been serving up some of the best Chinese AND Cuban dishes in the city since 1968. It’s a story of perseverance, cultures coming together, and really, really good eats.

  1. This is not the only Cuban and Chinese restaurant in NYC. There are two cuban and chinese restaurants in queens, one is called Nuevo Jardin de China in Astoria and the other one is Mi Estrella in Jackson Heights. There is also one called Jardin de China in Corona that serves Chinese and Latin food, including some Cuban dishes.

  2. Very surprised it is the last one. Maybe because it is Cuban + Chinese. I’ve seen a number of Latin American + Chinese food restaurants opened by Hispanic cooks that used to work for Chinese restaurant.

  3. So interesting, I thought "Comida China y Criolla" was only a thing in here the Dominican Republic. Basically every Chinese restaurant here serves a mix of Chinese and Caribbean food, where tostones are as important as rice.
