ABOUT THIS MEAL

The star of "Mofongo Sunday" will definitely be the delicious mofongo, a garlicky fried plantain many times paired with soups and stews.
For some history, mofongo from Puerto Rico, mangu from the Dominican Republic, and machuca from Central America all have it's roots in Africa. You can compare it to fufu from Nigeria and Ghana and you will see that they are an interpretation.

ON THE MENU

Mofongo served with "Churrasco" (skirt steak) or Louisiana wild caught shrimp
Appetizer

What is "Mofongo?" "Indeed, the word, "mofongo" appears to stem from the Angolan Kikongo term "mfwenge-mfwenge", which means a great amount of anything. Similarly, the noun "mfwongo" meaning "plate" or "flat surface", is also found in another variant of Kikongo spoken in Angola." The most common way to eat "Mofongo" in Puerto Rico is with plantain, garlic and "chicharron"(pork rind).

Ensalada de Pulpo (Octopus Salad).
Dessert

Variation of colors, textures and flavors is likely to get your taste buds excited

Dark Rum infused Upside Down Pineapple Cake
Beverage

Dark Rum and Fresh Pineapple sweetness to satisfy the sweet tooth.

Hortacha or Agua de Ajonjolí (Puerto Rican style sesame seed drink)

On "Mofongo Sunday" we will try one of the lesser known horchata drinks.
