It's kind of hard for me to taste the great flavor of Puerto Rico food. I had mofongo shrimp I garlic sauce. It was not Chinese style garlic sauce, which is sour and sweet. It was a truly "garlic" sauce. My mouth was full of garlic flavor. It was the first time I saw and had mofongo. OMG, I really couldn't take it. Anyway, the shrimps were large and fresh. It's not a bad restaurant, it's just not my taste.

I went with my family this past Friday. The place was packed with costumers and the 2 waiters were exhausted, but still they were very nice. The service was very slow, but we ordered delicious Mojitos and empanadas. When the food finally arrived it was very good as always. Love their mofongos, the pernil is the best, the chicken soup was very good, the plantains delicious, and the coco flan to die for. I love the place. I like the fact that it has great art, nice people tending the tables, good music and great flavors. It is true that this is not the Fonda of many years ago, now it is more sophisticated and expensive, but still it is great to travel there for a satisfying meal that tastes home-made.

I ordered takeout (the steak with onions, rice with gondules and sweet plantains). The steak tasted okay, but looked extremely bland. The onions were translucent with no color at all! The rice was fine, but I'm not sure it is possible for spanish people to mess up rice. The sweet plantains, however, were horrible.....disgustingly oily, totally over-ripe, mushy. I tried to dry up the pool of oil with a paper towel but they were so mushy that then it turned into one big globby mess! I don't understand why a restaurant would serve such poor quality food. There are so many other good spanish restaurants around, so I would avoid this one. Oh, and it was also much more expensive than other spanish restaurants in the area.
