Anyway on Sunday after work Niel picks me and his mom up from the city. I took a train up to meet Niel and my mother in-law at Grand Central. She was returning from a candle buying excursion in Massachusetts with her sisters. We drive to her neighborhood and eat a new diner that opened up. The diner only serves Hispanic food. Can you hear the angels singing? Because the foods at this diner would make them sing. I love Hispanic food. Niel and I are lucky that we both enjoy the foods from each other's cultures. My favorites are rice and beans, Pernil skin (roast pork) and Mofongo(plantains cooked and crushed with garlic and bits of pork).
This diner made the most freshest Mofongo I have ever tasted. It was buttery and flavorful.
But between eating that and the rice and beans on Sunday, the last few days have been miserable for my belly. :(
