Café Central is the go to place in Chicago for Puerto Rican cuisine. Situated in the heart of the trendy West Town neighborhood, Café Central welcomes all visitors to try their made-from-scratch recipes. The steak Jibarito, a sandwich invented in Chicago, is not to be missed. It uses two fried green plantains in place of bread with skirt steak, lettuce, tomato, mayonnaise, grilled onions and cheese in between. Order your sandwich with the arroz con gandules to make the dining experience complete. From the jibarito to the mofongo, Café Central pleases the taste buds with every bite.
