Time Out says

If you smell something delicious when you walk into this Puerto Rican diner, don’t bother trying to figure out what it is. It could be any number of the greasy-spoon comfort foods that are dished up here daily: chunky, tomato-heavy goat stew or garlicky mofongo, savory balls of plantains studded with corn. Then again, it could be the oniony jibaro (dubbed “hee-ba-roe” on the English menu), a gooey cheese-steak–like sandwich that substitutes plantains for bread. So take a seat—looks like you’ve got some research to do.
