The establishment is part restaurant, part lunch counter, and part Latin Quarter deli. The menu at Porch Light Latin Kitchen is filled with street foods, sandwiches, and authentic Latin dishes. On the small and ever-changing menu, you can expect to find dishes like Puerto Rican fried pork chop, confit duck fried rice, empanadas, plantains, and other creative dishes.
