Where to find Shrimp Mofongo - St. Croix ??
Anyone know of a restaurant on St. Croix that might have Shrimp Mofongo? I tried to call Villa Morales, but their phone seems to be out.
My favorite is a little place on Calle Loiza in San Juan. Can't think of the name. I have looked at recipes. Some are quite simple, some are very ingredient heavy. I called El Sol. They do have mofongo sometimes, not always, and they don't have shrimp mofongo, at all. They do have a shrimp in garlic sauce, but not really what I'm looking for.
Someone on STX must have it!! If not, I guess I'll either have to go to San Juan or start cooking.....LOL
Try El Flamboyant. We've had their mofongo and it's great. If I recall, they offered at least four varieties, including shrimp.
Just an update....I found shrimp mofongo at El Flamboyant Restaurant on Route 663, near the highway.
OUTSTANDING!! I went with 2 friends and we shared shrimp mofongo, tostones relleno with conch and the pot fish. Each plate was about $20. Lots of food, and my friends from the states were really loving the local beans and rice. We went back again before they left and shared pork chops, fried chicken and beefsteak. Again, tons of food to bring home. Total bill, including drinks (one cocktail, one bottled water and one soda) was $44, plus tip.
It's extremely casual, full bar available, completely open-air, no printed menu....they just tell you what they have, or maybe a chalk board. We had to wait about 30 minutes the first time we went because our food was cooked to order. The second time, we all ordered something that was already prepared, so it was really fast. Very pleasant server and kitchen staff. The only drawback is being right on 663, it gets a lot of truck traffic going by, and Tuesday there was some jerk on a motorcycle "acting up", but hope that was a one time thing.
Can't wait to go again!!
Great to hear; I hadn't seen it anywhere on island. I love shrimp mofongo; always get my fix in PR. Best I've ever had is in a little place in Luquillo. Went back twice in one week for the same dish.
My favorite, for mofongo, is a little place on Calle Loiza in San Juan. When in Luquillo, we always go to Lolita's! I know, I know....it's not "real" Mexican food, but I love it. YUM!!!
