i believe it's called patacones or patacones rellenos: "Shredded beef, special sauce, ketchup, mayo, lettuce, fried cheese, on a double-fried plantain bun." (http://newyork.seriouseats.com/2009/1...)
i visited family/friends in ny during thanksgiving when my buddy turned me on to this fantastic venezuelan joint specializing in this type of plantain sandwich in elmhurst. check out the pics from the link and the pic i took below. are there any venezuelan spots in the bay area that makes this stuff?
the only thread that seemed remotely close was one about Pica Pica: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/615976.
any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks so much.
