Arroz con Gandules has to be one of my favorite things in Latin cooking. There is something about the spices they use that makes it taste remarkable. The gandules are more of a bean than a pea. They don't have much taste, but I love them.
The yuca was tender and cooked nicely. There's not much you can say about a yuca :)
Ivan got one of my other favorite things, Bistec Encebollado with Arroz con Gandules and Yuca. Bistec Encebollado is basically steak and onions. They are cooked together in a pan along with other spices. If you have never had it, you are missing out! The steak was thin, juicy, and full of flavor. Cooked perfectly :)
If you are looking for authentic, inexpensive Puerto Rican food, give Las Antillas a shot. I have tried many different dishes and they are all wonderful. The menu rotates daily, but they usually have the Bistec and a pork dish. You can't go wrong with anything, but if you ever see the Pernil, grab it!! Yum!!
