Mangu is a typical Dominican food, commonly eaten as a side dish, or as part of more complex dishes. It is made by mashing boiled green plantains and adding a little salt, pepper, water (or a flavoured stock) and butter to it. It's commonly eaten as part of breakfast accompanying fried salami or as a side dish, just like mashed potatoes. Very filling and tasty. The name of Mangu is a contraption of the expresion Americans used when they first tried it during the USA invation of the Dominican Republic in the early 20th century "Man Good", hence "Mangu".
I dont want lunch yet, I had some Mangu and fried cheese for a late breakfast at the hotel.
