Mangu? What the heck is that?
Updated: Aug 1
Puerto Rico is know for is Mofongo but the Dominican Republic is known for its Mangu. And although they both start with he same raw ingredient a Plantain they end up in to very different places.
Mangu Consists of boiled mashed plantains (green or ripe) with butter, garlic, and salt. It's traditionally paired with sautéed pickled red onions, fried eggs, fried cheese, salami, or all three combined for what locals call Los Tres Golpes. It is traditionally served for breakfast but can be eaten anytime. We believe it makes for a great Brunch or Dinner meal. So make sure to stop by the store to try it while we have it.
