The Taste Test: Luna Rosa - San Antonio Express-News

In Puerto Rican cooking, the quality of a dish and whether it soars or sinks hinges on the quality of a sofrito.

What exactly is sofrito? The mixture of minced aromatic vegetables and herbs traces its origins to Spain and Italy and includes onions, garlic, cilantro, fresh mild peppers and a relative of cilantro called culantro. Then the combination is sauteed in olive oil or lard and enlivened with achiote for a yellow hue.

That fundamental building block is in good hands at Luna Rosa, where chef Iris Gonzalez-Ornelas crafts excellent Puerto Rican home-style dishes. The menu here also includes some Spanish tapas, but you’ll want to stick with the island flavors.
