I've had alcapurrias, but they weren't plantain, they were shredded yucca, I think.

yea the menu i have for la bomba "translates" alcapurria to "banana dumpling" which is kinda misleading seeing as how the lady told me they were potato stuffed with pork.

this is the "banana dumpling" mentioned above. i think it is made with plantain though. it is a very soft dough whatever it is, and it's stuffed with ground pork, onions and spices before taking it's turn in the fryer. also a great snack

this is very similar to empanada. it is a flaky crust enclosing just a bit of ground beef, onions and spices. also a great snack.
