I cant say Ive ever had mofongo in the past. I've seen the word in a lot of Spanish restaurants but never really knew what it was.
Came here on a Thursday night with my friends from the gym. One of the highly recommended this place. I trust his taste. This place isnt fancy and i wasnt even sure if there was table service had i come without someone who has been there before. The counter is in the front and seats in the back. i thought was it was cafeteria/food court style but there is actually table service.
There were 7 of us, and 6 of us ordered the mofongo de Chicharrónes (fried pork belly). I had no idea what to expect but im sure anything with fried pork belly should be awesome and it was. Mofongo is basically mashed green plaintains with garlic, onion, spices, seasonings and whichever meat/seafood/veggies you prefer.
It was really good, they were generous on the portions and even the Chicharrónes was delicious. the skin was so crispy, yet the meat wasnt dry at all. I think the next time i go, i would order the platter, and the mofongo as an app/side to share, but with 3-4 persons at the very least.
