Dinner at this Dominican restaurant in the lower east side, El Castillo De Jagua. I ordered the Mofongo (mashed plantains with pork skin and dipping sauce). The sauce was tomato based with shredded pork meat and potatoes. It was pretty much a soup in itself. I also had the Sancocho soup (a Spanish stew/soup with nice pork chunks). Great affordable food. I’ve read the Cuban sandwich is pretty baddass.

Then off the Living Room to catch my next-door neighbors in Ghost Gamblers and to meet up with friends, which we then got some tacos at San Loco. Me So Full.
