WHAT IS MOFONGO ?
Mofongo is a Puerto Rican dish made with fried and smashed plantains. It is related to the West African staple starch dish called Fufu, originally made with yuca. In the past, slaves sent to the Caribbean originally brought this dish across the Atlantic.
Fufu made it into several Caribbean cuisines, with varying levels of alteration. In the Dominican Republic it carries the name of Mangú, in Cuba, it is known as Fufu de Platano.
In Puerto Rico, it is almost always made with plantains, but yuca and breadfruit variations exist. The plantains are typically smashed using a wooden mortar and pestle called a pilon, and sometimes served directly in the pilon.
There are many ways to enjoy Mofongo. It is often dipped in chicken broth or a sauce made with mayonnaise and ketchup, or served with a tomato-based sauce and grilled or sautéed shrimp. You can eat it with many sides, even with a big Churrasco wish is very popular in our restaurant.
