What the appetizer? Its all about the plantains in food like this Canoa here in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The size of that thing, looks more like a dinner dish. Giant fried sweet plantain stuffed with ground beef and vegetables with ton of cheesy goodness on top. Its almost like all the stuffing is bursting out of the plantain. It wants you to eat it! Made for a great flavor combination with mix of savory, sweet and cheesiness. For the most part the fried plantain dominates the flavor with hints of beef. This thing is so massive and heavy that two of us were full after words.
