I’ve been to a few underwhelming restaurants in the past few months that I won’t bother to write about, but I went to Sol Food* in San Rafael for the first time a while back, and it was quite good– especially the three types of plantains I had:
- Tostones (shown below): green plantain fried, smashed into a patty, fried again until slightly crispy, and served with olive oil and garlic. Mmm.
- Maduros: sweet fried yellow plantains, very soft.
- Mofongo: shredded green plantain, fried with some olive oil and garlic, but a texture much more like rice than the Tostones.
* They have an annoying flash-based restaurant web site, definitely a candidate for http://neversaidaboutrestaurantwebsites.tumblr.com/
