The plantain and green banana
Essential ingredients for local food.
The plantain and green banana are an immature presentation of banana and ripe plantain. They are commonly found in yellow colors and with a very sweet and mild flavor in other parts of the world.
On the other hand, the Caribbean cuisine has given an unusual prominence to these fruits in their traditional cuisine but with the difference that they are prepared in a state called "Viche", in this stage the banana and plantain are characterized by being green and having a sour and dry taste that does not seem appetizing, until the kitchen of the mystic city of the Caribbean adds its culinary magic, turning it into exquisite dishes such as Patacón, Cayeye or the very popular Tajaditas.
