La Cocina Puertorriqueña specializes in authentic homemade Puerto Rican food catered to natives of the island. The restaurant serves several variations of the island's signature dish, Mofongo, a mix of fried green plantains mashed with garlic, spices, and meat. In addition to typical home-cooked fare, the restaurant offers guests a taste of some of the owner's favorite Puerto Rican music. There is certainly no shortage of culture in this restaurant, but -- as always -- the best way to get to know a people is through their food.
