Freeport is a treasure trove of undiscovered culinary gems. Case in point: La Cocina de Marcia where  Marcia Beltre's kitchen puts out terrific Dominican and Puerto Rican cooking.

This casual spot, chosen as one of Newsday's Top 10 Cheap Eats in 2010,  balances a brisk takeout business with leisurely in-house dining. Host Meredith Daniels takes a tour of Marcia's famous kitchen to watch the mouthwatering pork, fresh fish, plantains and rice prepared right in front of her.

La Cocina de Marcia is at 77 B W. Merrick Rd. , Merrick, 516-986-5222,  .
