Latin Food at Yankee Stadium
Latinos make up the majority of Yankee fans. So it’s no surprise that Mami’s platanos fritos will hit the stands.
“In the Bronx, Latin food has always been easy to find. But not in Yankee Stadium. It has been one place in the majority-Hispanic borough where the only thing that came close to qualifying as authentic Latin fare was an order of nachos.
This season, however, the stadium’s menu — hot dogs, hamburgers, chicken fingers, fries, pork fried rice, peanuts and even sushi and baked ziti — has some spicy new additions. They read like the day’s specials at a Washington Heights restaurant: ground beef or cheese empanadas; chicken in salsa with sweet plantains, rice and beans; Cuban sandwiches with plantain chips; and papas rellenas, or fried stuffed potatoes.”
