This west Phoenix restaurant featuring casual, wallet-friendly Puerto Rican cuisine offers dishes served up in the style of Créole cooking, or what the locals call cocina criolla. Start with the sweet plantains, then try the fried chicken rubbed with adobo, the classic Puerto Rican pork roast pernil, or a softball-size lump of garlic-heavy mofongo. Wash it down with a bottle of Malta, and you’ll be swaying to a Puerto Rican salsa in no time.
