Delicious mofongo, restaurant of the locals Aug 24, 2009
This Puerto Rican restaurant was on Isla Verde but away from the beach. It appears that it may have at one time been located right on the water but now sits on a busy street on hotel row instead.
The restaurant is open 24/7 and is full of locals at any given time of the day. Mofongo is one of their specialties but the menu is extensive. Mofongo is mashed plantains infused with lots of garlic and served with pork, shrimp, beef, or chicken. A great deal, too, at $8-11 per entree'.
The night we were in the restaurant there were some issues in the kitchen and it took about an hour to get our food. However, when it arrived it was hot and superb with each of us ordering something different in our group of 5. All was delicious and worth the wait.
Mofongo here was about 1/2 the price of other caribbean restaurants within the hotels and from what I understand from other travelers, twice as good.
Also suitable for groups and children.
