If you've never tried Puerto Rican food, you should try this place - it's not Cuban, but you'll find some similarities, since they're both Caribbean. The maduros and tostones (sweet ripe and green bananas) are both wonderful. The churrasco is skirt steak, and luscious. Mofongo (the name of the restaurant) is also a banana based dish.

Mofongos Comida Caribena is LA's best Puerto Rican food. In fact, this is probably the ONLY Puerto Rican restaurant in LA. Scrawny place, but with a chef who learned from his grandma and really understands Puerto Rican flavors.

I took my hubby to this restaurant so he could have some food to remind him of home on his birthday. The place is tiny! I think it seats only 20. We were pleasantly surprised by the variety of authentic items on the menu. We had: mofongo con camarones, yuca, mofongo con pernil, arroz con gandules, tostones, alcapurrias and a... More
