La Casa del Mofongo is open 24 hours a day, has sushi, hookah, and an attached nightclub with multi-colored strobe lights, but the real reason you should come to this massive restaurant is for the mofongo. More than 30 different types of this fried plantain dish are served here, with add-ons ranging from herring and lobster to oxtail and tripe, but we prefer to keep it simple with crispy chicharron and a heavy pour of garlic sauce.
