O.M.G.!!! I took the daughter and granddaughters out tonight (girls night out) for Puerto Rican food. Not my first, but it was theirs. Oh, wow, was it good!!! It was a restaurant I found online when actually searching for Cuban restaurants, but it had the best comments/recommendations of those nearby.
We drove over 1/2 hour from my daughter's, which is already 15 minutes from my job, but worth every bite, every cent, and every mile that we drove!
We ordered 3 appetizers and two entrees, and it was too much food. We had amarillas, which are fried plantains. We had bacalaito, which is a fried cod fish fritter. We had pastelillo de pollo, which are chicken turnovers. MMMMM!!!! The daughter and the grandkiddos didn't like the texture of the plantains, but loved the flavor.
The entrees were pechuga al ajillo and mofongo - both were chicken sauted in garlic butter with onions and red and green bell peppers. MMMMMM!!!
I'm sure I went over my points today, but I'll make up for it tomorrow!
