Fried Green Plantains & Shrimp Soup w/ Rice...Sightseeing & Eating in San Juan
Fried Green Plantains & Shrimp Soup with Rice
Fried Green Plantains are a popular favorite snack, appetizer or a side dish in Puerto Rico. They are usually served in any Puerto Rican restaurant. You just cut the plantain into many pieces diagonally, sprinkle some salt and fry in a hot pan. Well that is what the waiter said!!! So check out what I got a chance to taste at the El Taino...yummie!!!
The taste was pretty good, not as sweet as the yellow plantain but very flavorful. It had a similar flavor to a potato chip.
The shrimp soup with rice was awesome!!! Big chunks of onions and tomatoes. You can taste the garlic and the many puerto rican spices. A very good soup to dip your fried plantains in...Delicious!!
