The other day while at our local Cuban / Puerto Rican restaurant, Metropol, I had a really great Mofongo con Pollo. So if you are wondering what is mofongo, here you go.

Mofongo is a mixture of fried green plantains or fried yuca, mashed together with garlic, olive oil and usually pork cracklings. It can be served as a side dish or as a main dish, where it can be filled with chicken, beef, or seafood. It will either be served directly on the plate (as in the picture) or depending on the restaurant it may be served in it’s own wooden bowl.

Mofongo is just one of the many Puerto Rican foods that you need to try, the next time you are here. So if you see mofongo on the menu whether as an entrée or side dish, make sure to give it a try
