La Placita serves Puerto Rican food, which you may be able to infer from the absolutely massive Puerto Rican flag that covers the outside of its building. Inside it’s just as loud and splashy with a tropical aesthetic that’s even present in the bathroom, where a soundtrack of jungle noises play on a loop. It’d be quite awkward if a place this proud of its heritage didn’t deliver on the food, but La Placita plays it straight with Puerto Rican classics. The mofongo is simple and tasty and you can customize your order with protein options like ropa vieja, shrimp, and chicken. Add some chicharrones de pollo and a piña colada and you’ll seriously consider painting a giant Puerto Rican flag on your house too.
