La Bomba in Humboldt Park is a casual Puerto Rican spot, and you’re here for the jibarito. It consists of charred, tender beef between two fried plantains plus tomato, lettuce, and cheese, and a delicious garlic mayo that ties everything together. It will make your breath bad for days, but it’s completely worth it.
