After having read about Senor Big Ed in the LA Times, the girls and I gave this Puerto Rican hole-in-the-wall a try.
It might not be as glorious as the one Anthony Bourdain had in the beach shack in Puerto Rico, but the concoction of mashed fried green plantains, garlic, olive oil and pork cracklings, served with fantastic broth is pure heaven.
We ate many other things that night and we loved them all. Slow cooked pork leg. Softball-sized potato ball stuffed with ground beef (relleno de papa). Arroz con gandules (Spanish rice with pigeon peas and pork). Tostones (fried green plantains patties). Pastelilios (beef-filled turnovers). Pastel (tamale made with plantain).
The meal is heavy in your stomach but VERY light on your wallet. However, we found service to be on island time. Don't come here if you're in a rush.
