Thick corn cakes filled with meat and cheese - it’s not the lightest lunch ever, but you’ll be set for a while. Get them filled with pork, chicken, beef, pork sausage, or vegetables. One is enough for lunch, but you can also get some fried plantains or beans on the side. We like the chicken, but no matter which filling you get, make sure to top yours with the slaw they keep in buckets on the tables.
