Hamden Puerto Rican Restaurant uses family recipes to attract customers

Hamdan – Two days after discovering La Isla, a new Puerto Rican restaurant in Hamden, Benard Clark has found himself there for the third day in a row.

He couldn’t help himself. Chicken soup was so good.

“I was blown away,” Clark said, standing in the parking lot outside the Dixwell Avenue restaurant on Friday. “This is the third day.”

He said he ordered chicken chips every time he visited.

It’s hard to explain, but the flavor just jumps in your face,” Clark said. “It’s really good.”

La Isla’s owners, husband and wife Leli and Darcus Henry, opened the restaurant because they wanted to bring homemade Puerto Rican food to Hamden.
