La Palma Puerto Rican Restaurant
1340 N. Homan Ave, Chicago, IL 60651
My favorite menu - Jibarito
The jibarito (pronounced hee-bah-ree-to), a specialty of Aguada and Chicago, is a sandwich made with flattened, fried green plantains instead of bread.
The original Borinquen jibarito had a steak filling, and that remains the usual variety, but other fillings, such as chicken and pork, are common. A proper jibarito also contains cheese, lettuce, tomato and garlic-flavored mayonnaise.
