Coal Country meets the Caribbean
Stop by this popular Scranton spot for authentic tastes of the Dominican Republic and beyond. Wanda’s Mofongo House II is the locally famous Latin American restaurant’s second location. Since they opened their original location in 2019, NEPA has been lining up for their signature Mofongo. The dish is made up of fried green plantains mashed with garlic, olive oil and other seasonings. The extensive menu offers a range of classic Caribbean cuisine like Yaroa, Patacon, Tostones, sandwiches and much more. Wanda’s features breakfast, lunch and dinner menus.
For breakfast, you can’t go wrong with the traditional, creamy Mangu and eggs, or Longanize (sausage). Their Quesadillas make for a quick, easy lunch. And, the dinner menu offers an assortment of tender steaks, goat and plenty of seafood options. The fried whole fish is a local favorite.
