Hop on board Volcano Bay’s stuffed plantain canoe

You’d do better with a fork than a paddle in this canoe.

Canoas de platanos (plantain canoes) are a delight I first encountered in the kitchen of a friend’s Puerto Rican mother — a dish that melds the rich sweetness of the plantain with the savory elements of the seasoned meat inside.

We ate them as more of an after-school snack, but when served alongside rice and beans, as happens at Universal’s Volcano Bay water theme park, it’ll give you more than enough staying power to hit every one of your favorite slides.
