It's Casa Mofongo Latin Grill and it's located in the heart of the Gables at 130 Miracle Mile.
|Passion Fruit Sangria|
|Mini Alcapurria Duet|
Our first course was a Mini Alcapurria Duet with a Pink Brandy Aioli. The bite sized starters were deliciously authentic, providing a comforting taste of La Isla. One was made with artisanal fried yuca and the other with sweet plantains. While they both had their own tantalizing charm and the ground beef stuffing was equally tasty, my favorite was the plantain alcapurria.
|Queso Frito Lollipops|
Next up, they brought out their Queso Frito Lollipops, topped with a guava glaze. A signature Puerto Rican favorite, the mild flavored cheese was excellent and I enjoyed the sweet and salty touch of the glaze.
|Pork Confit and Green Mofongo Timbal|
|Coconut Ginger Shrimp and Pork Belly Yellow Rice|
After all this, could there be more? Wepa! There was! We ended la cena with a Creamy Coconut Flan, that hit the spot. It was beautifully presented with crystallized caramel on top and berries on the side. Que rico!
