Lula's Latin Cuisine- Dumont, NJ (Bergen County)

My dude and I at there a couple of days ago. We wanted to sample their offerings, so we ordered way too much food, all of which we enjoyed. We split a cuban sandwich and I gotta say, as much as I love El Caney in Bergenfield, this one takes the best cuban sandwich award. Awesome.

I had the mofungo with chicken. I'd never had it before, but it was something I had been wanting to try since seeing Anthony Bourdain's tour of Puerto Rico. Mofunogo was supertasty (how can you go wrong with fried, then smashed & seasoned plantain?) and chicken was great. My dude had the oxtail- very good- along with yellowrice and blackbeans. Also very good (though in a head-to-head, I think El Caney's win the black bean award). We shared a plate of tostones- good, but I wasn't super crazy about the mojito sauce served with them.

Lula's makes its own hot sauce- good stuff- very hot!

All that food, and I think our bill was less than $30 (plus we had lunch for the next day). We'll be back.
