Diana’s is an affordable diner with awesome Puerto Rican sandwiches. They offer a half-dozen ways to eat plantains, including alcapurrias, maduras, tostones, and mofongo. This place closes in the early evening, so it’s best to come in for breakfast or lunch. Or breakfast and lunch so you can work your way through all those different plantain dishes.
