Miami New Times' Description

Although Benny's bills itself as a seafood establishment, land and sea are equally represented on the menu. Besides, this pleasant storefront luncheonette is really known for authentic Puerto Rican cuisine. Appetizers include fried blood sausage, and green banana ceviche stocked with chicken gizzards. More gringo-friendly starters feature a variety of meat, poultry, and seafood fillings fried in empanada-dough (empanadilla) or yuca-dough (alcapurria), or tucked within a masa of yautí­a and green plantains steamed tamale-style in banana leaf (pastel). Everyone at Benny's seems to order the mofongo. You can have the fried-plantain specialty straight up or choose from an entire page of meat, poultry, and shellfish toppings. Most popular is the one piled with thick chunks of terrifically juicy fried pork. Lobster, shrimp, and snapper come breaded and fried, or sautéed in garlic and butter, or awash in a pimiento-sweetened, slightly spicy, tomato-creole sauce. Seafood dinners, with choice of two sides, range in price from $17.95 to $22.95 (Benny's is a bargain). Try chilled maví, a strange iced brew made from tree bark, or the Puerto Rican rendition of eggnog (coquito). Mostly, though, try Benny's for distinctive island cuisine from someplace other than Cuba.

    Best of Miami 2013- Best Mofongo: Bennys Seafood Restaurant. Mofongo- a delicious Puerto Rican dish made of deep-fried plantains mashed together with garlic and pork rinds in a mortar with a pestle.
