Best Puerto Rican food in Chicago. Friendly service & fresh food, always.
Owner was vile n disgusting. We stopped in to buy frituras. He told me he only sold plates. While I spoke with him one person in our party used the bathroom. He lost his mind n cursed us out.
It's hard to find mofongo in Chicago, so it's good La Plena makes a pretty good one! The rest of the Puerto Rican food is great as well.
Ask for the veggie jibarito. It's loaded with avocado, peppers, cheese and tomatoes and is heaven between two plantains.
Want fresh food? You need to come here!! Excellent service and Authentic food!
