Puerto Rico Cuisine Recs? (Sofrito)

carlywood | Mar 20, 2007 10:52 AM

I'm going to Sofrito tonight with my boyfriend and I've never really had Puerto Rican food, per se.

Yes, I've had my share of churrasco, fried plaintains and yuca, but I'm more interested in some of the other dishes featured from the region.

Has anyone been to Sofrito? If so, what would you recommend?

Also, I've heard the roast pork with pigeon peas and rice is delicious. However, I have no idea what the flavoring would be for the roast pork and am especially dumbfounded by what a pigeon pea tastes like.

Any insight is greatly appreciated. I'd really like to spread my wings a bit.
