Our Portobello Jibarito is a  Native Foodie fan favorite!! Blackened Portobello cap sandwiched between two pieces of plantain “bread”, with chimichurri aioli, avocado, lettuce, carrot, onion, house-pickled chips and chili con limon.

Did you know?
The Jibarito is a traditional Puerto Rican plantain sandwich. The Jibarito was introduced to the city of Chicago in 1996 by Juan Figueroa at his restaurant “Borinquen Restaurant” in Humboldt Park. #foodfacts #newnative #boldflavors
