La Casa Del Mofongo is a massive spot that’s open 24 hours. As you can you probably tell from the name, mofongo is the house specialty, and there are about 30 different ways you can get it, with everything from shrimp and pernil to octopus and lobster. There are also a bunch of other things like steak and fried chicken, but you should stick to the mofongo. It’s the best thing here. This is a good spot for a casual group dinner, and we especially like it for a quick meal in the bar area where you can watch sports on TV and smoke some hookah (if you’re into that).
