Check Out This Unique Deep Fried Plantain Sandwich at Patacon Pisao on the Lower East Side

Patacon Pisao is a small restaurant on the Lower East Side that serves up delicious Venezuelan street food, sandwiches, arepas and more on the cheap. In this video from the excellent Fork Yeah series from Thrillist, check out their unique Deep Fried Plantain Sandwich.

Forget all your preconceived notions about bread reigning supreme as king of the sandwich -- plantains can miraculously succeed in replacing the conventional sandwich binder. That’s the case at Patacon Pisao, a Lower East Side shop whose name translates to “flattened plantain.”
