Restaurante Isla Verde
Restaurante Isla Verde demonstrates that sometimes you have to stray pretty far from home to find the best home cooking. Though they specialize in Puerto Rican cuisine, the restaurant's chefs have built a menu that showcases traditional dishes from all over the Caribbean. Dishes such as shrimp tacos and Brazilian steak are served alongside Puerto Rican staples like whole stuffed snapper and slow-roasted pork. Another standout specialty is the mofongo, a flavorful mash of fried plantains, garlic, and pork crackling that an Orlando Sentinel reviewer called "one of the best I have tasted outside of Puerto Rico."
