Whether it’s fruits, vegetables, meats or grains, they all have some kind of texture. When cooked the texture of the food changes. Texture adds flavor, a different appearance, and overall outlook on an item. On Sunday, October 11th, I went to the last day of Smorgasburg. It was my first time going there. I had the mindset to try new foods. I’m on a journey to expand my palate, expose myself to new things, and gain knowledge. In this picture here you have Monfongo. I’ve never tried monfongo, let alone heard of it so I said why not. Monfongo is sweet plantains mashed up into a bowl shape (to hold the contents), pork with a mild or spicy sriracha sauce. You can choose whether you want pork, chicken or beef.
