Though found at pretty much every Puerto Rican joint in Chicago, the Jibarito — a sandwich featuring lettuce, tomato, onion, cheese and meat stuffed in between two fried, salted green plantains (instead of bread) — isn’t really found in Puerto Rico itself. That’s because it was invented in the Windy City by Juan Figueroa of the now-defunct Borinquen, in Humboldt Park.
