Got Mangú?

Got Mangú?

 

A Dominican Diet! This is one of my very first t-shirts, a true classic.  Mangú, is one of the most popular and most traditional dishes of the Dominican Republic, made out smashed green plantains accompanied by salami, fried cheese or eggs.  
Folk tales say the word “Mangu” derived from the American expression “man, this is good!”, hence the pronunciation “man-goo”.  An expression that was born during the US 1916 invasion as “Mangu” was given to American service persons. (via Wikipedia)
