MIAMI, Fla. - Hidden in plain sight on Eighth Street near Little Havana is a Dominican Restaurant that serves up their island specialty Mofongos.

The tiny, modest streetfront eatery claims to be the official restaurant of the Florida Marlins and shows off photographs of their country's baseball heroes along every stretch of wall including Dominican American Red Sox players Pedro Martinez and David Ortiz.

Also on the walls are those from other teams including the Yanks but we shalln't speak of that.

Mofongos is a fried and mashed green plaintain, a fruit that resembles a banana but isn't eaten uncooked.

We had ours with queso and Longaniza, a Spanish sausage.

The cheese used was similar to a mild mozzarella and is fried and comes out beautifully crunchy without flour, cooked in oil and butter to form a golden brown crust.

The sausage was rolled into uneven balls and tasted of distinctively seasoned country sausage.

Washed down with cervesa Budweiser, it was a tasty $15 lunch, tax included.

By the way, breakfast with bacon or sausage and toast at Milly's located at 2742 SW 8th St., Miami, is less than $3.
