- Yucca in garlic sauce
Starchy, fibrous yucca in garlic sauce ($3.99) kicks us off pleasantly though, with spoonfuls of the minced, pickled vamp venom lingering on our palates long into the night. But the real star remains the fabulous, piquant mojo sauce on the side, a mix of vinegar, olive oil and lime seasoned with onion, garlic and cilantro, as described to us when we first fell for it at the old location. It also kills atop a quartered, crisp-skinned pollo frito (fried chicken, $9.99), complete with arroz con gandules (sofrito-laced rice with pigeon peas) and mofongo, mashed, fried plantains flecked with crunchy chicharrón bits (yes please, forever).
