The Meeting Corner Churns Out Legit Puerto Rican Cuisine

Downtown Fuquay-Varina’s best place for a meal isn’t a pizza joint, a soul-food outpost or a Mexican restaurant. Instead, it’s a modest Puerto Rican eatery situated in the back of a store that sells handcrafts and antiques. The Meeting Corner, a joint venture between friends Edna Morales and Jaquelina Marks, represents the fulfillment of a dream for the proprietors. 

Morales, a charming native of Puerto Rico, serves up bona fide cuisine from her native country at lunchtime and offers family-size takeout options for dinner. The food is simple yet well-crafted, and it’s all infused with abundant flavor.

Satisfying offerings include rice and beans, empanadas, pastelon (sweet plantain lasagna), tostones and—of course—flan. If chocolate flan is available, don’t pass it up. Additional menu items worth consideration are fricasse de pollo (chicken stew) over rice and ropa vieja (shredded beef) with onions and peppers. 

The quaint, no-frills dining room provides room for about a dozen patrons. Morales single-handedly prepares and serves the food. Be prepared to wait a while for food to arrive at your table, but when it shows up you’ll find it’s definitely worth the wait.
