mofongo




Plantains mashed with garlic and margarine, topped with fried tofu, with a side of grilled veggies (onions, carrots, peppers, artichoke hearts). The chef in this little tapas restaurant in San Juan, Puerto Rico, made this specially after finding out that I was vegan.

wow, I don't think I've ever seen a resturant custom-made vegan meal that looked so good.

I know- I was really touched by how friendly the waiter and the chef were, and the food was delicious.

When I was in Puerto Rico everyone thought chicken was a type of vegetable and there was pork in nearly everything. I did get some decent veggie food in old San Juan but wish I had been more outgoing and asked for all vegan food! I still love Puerto Rico even though they tricked me into eating pork a few times. Lettuce wrap... no really it's just pork. Blagh.
