Just got takeout food from here.

The place is a madhouse. I think they were trying to form two lines, one for sandwiches, one for the steam trays of food, but I am not certain. There was no time to sit back and try to understand the menu and what you get with your entree. And the counterperson really didn't speak English too well and I did not end up with what I wanted.

But it all worked out for the best, as the food was fantastic. I got the fried pork chunks with rice and beans and a side order of maduros. The portions were huge. They had small containers of that green sauce condiment that someone else was asking about -- I'm still not sure what the name of it is (mojo?) but it is great and you can help yourself to how many you want. The pork chunks were marinated in something incredibly tasty.

In short, I am definitely going back for more, as good food always trumps madhouse conditions. Plus it should go smoother next time now that I am a veteran.
