i thought I posted about this place last time, but don't see it so maybe I didn't.

I just had my second lunch at Plaintain since it's re-opening.

I like the place. They have $10 lunch box specials which include salmon ceviche, a choice of entree (roast pig, jerk chicken, curry, chicken, or coconut curry shrimp), and a choice of sides (mofongo, red beans and rice, roasted plantains, moros.)

I've had the curry shrimp, the curry chicken and liked them both. Their ceviche is yummy (I've had salmon and clam.) The roasted sweet plaintains have honey and cinnamon so are dessert-like but good.

I didn't like about their sangria.

I recommend the place, but would like to know what you think. Anyone?
