The slow rhythm of a Bob Marley song plays in the background, as the aroma of Tostones fills the dining room, making us eager to fill our bellies.
Forgive my simplification, Tostones are sliced, battered and fried plantains, that make a crispy outer layer, soft inside, and is fulfilling snack and appretizer.
From what I’ve been told, Puerto Ricans are masters of the plantain. Javier and his wife Sharon vindicate and raise that bar even higher.

Early last Friday morning we welcomed Jimmy and Cindi Ferguson into our Harker Heights Chamber family, with a ribbon cutting at their new McDonald's Restaurant on Knights Way by Harker Heights High School and the Neighborhood Walmart.
,We were all blown away with how modern this new building was. From the decor, to the kitchen to the way you can order food, it was sleek, modern, and high tech. For the first time in most of our lives, we got to order food from a kiosk and like usual, I chose the Bacon egg and cheese Mcgriddle my go to McDonald's breakfast meal.
A giant surprise for most of us was how serious they are about their Farm to Table program. Sourcing ingredients from farmers across the state and nation bringing only the freshest produce they can find right from the farm, to your table.
The building was sleek, modern and clean, with a hand painted and localized mural in the play area exemplifying Jimmy & Cindi's promise to be strong community members.
