platano sandwiches...

mouse | Mar 30, 2004 01:36 AM

I've heard through the grapevine that there are sandwiches in Chicago made from squished plaintains.

I lived in Chicago over a decade ago, I'm half Puerto Rican and somehow never had one and now I'm coming back for a week and I want one bad!

Where can I find the best one? What does one look for? What are the options? What's the lexicon? Where do these things come from (mama didn't play that way)?

Please enlighten me.
