The shrimp jibarito ($8.95) at Joey's Shrimp House is taken seriously. The plantains are absurdly thin and crisp, while also managing to be pliant enough not to shatter when you bite in. The shrimp filling is sautéed moments before it is placed on the sandwich. It all adds up to remarkably balanced jibarito. Asi me gusta!
