Mofongo, it's great, it's a mound of plantainy, porky, and garlicky goodness.
If you haven't had any you are wrong and must fix yourself right away by getting some, unless of course you live in a place devoid of Puerto Ricans. Maybe if you're lucky you have a Cuban or Dominican restaurant and can get some fufu or mangú, close but they aren't mofongo.


  1. I will find this in Texas if it kills me.

  2. There is a caribbean food trailer called "El Rincon Criollo" in Austin. Mofongo is one of its specialties! I will have to try it, too!!! I don't remember eating mofongo when I was in Puerto Rico ...i am filled with wrongness!
