Café Mofongo

Hell's Kitchen

This takeout and delivery nook—only a few stools are squeezed in under cramped counter space—churns out Dominican favorites for a Hell’s Kitchen clientele. Pollo al horno, bistec or longaniza—a Spanish-style sausage typically made with pork, paprika and rosemary—anchor combo plates, with a heaping choice of rice and beans or plantains. Mofongo—the namesake dish—topped with a choice of crispy pork rinds, oxtail, shrimp, chicken or braised beef, sate hungry midtowners, as do early-morning helpings of salami, eggs and cheese scrambled together on a mash of green plantains. Wash the starchy Dominican staple down with sips of morir soñando, a sweet combo of milk and orange juice.
