Mmmm, I love tostones. I bagged myself a Cuban guy too and I go to school in Miami now!
I've found that if you keep the plantains in the fridge before cutting, they end up with a better texture (and easier to cut). I'm pretty lazy so I love the bagged pre-smushed ones you find in the frozen section too  Grin

Yay for tostones, but I also wanna know about your cafecito! Cuban coffee is the best, I remember going to the Miami airport, needing a coffee, and noticing that all the pilots, air crew, and airport employees turned their back on Starbucks and got their coffee from a little cart in one of the Concourse areas. I followed one guy and when they took my order I said "I'll get what he ordered". It was something like "cortadito", and it was the strongest, richest coffee ever, with sweetened steamed half and half. Heaven.

patacones (same thing, but Im panamanian so its patacones here) are my favorite food ever!
I actually shape them like a little basket before frying them the second time and after that I put something else in there like salmon or shrimps.



 mmmmm delicioso!

Maybe I can try a tutorial for that, too!  I always miss being able to order one after a big meal. When we moved up here to Chicago my boy's family stocked us with enough espresso to last about 10 years (literally).

Tostones are very delicious, but popular throughout the Caribbean, not only Cuba. In Puerto Rico they are served with every meal, practically. If you go to a Chinese resturant, they give you a side of tostones jejejeje  Tongue

just a FYI of the variety of cultures (and islands) that hold tostones VERY close to heart  Cheesy
