    Chuleta Kan Kan

    Berkshire pork / rice / beans / fried plantains

    Chuleta kan kan is a Puerto Rican creation consisting of a beautifully cooked pork chop. The pork chop is prepared using the sous vide technique, ensuring even cooking and moisture retention. It is then finished with a "Mohawk" presentation, resembling the flared dress of a can-can dancer. The dish is served with traditional accompaniments such as arroz (rice), habichuelas (beans), and tostones (fried plantains), providing a comforting and flavorful Puerto Rican dining experience.

    From Prep to Plate

    At the dynamic La Famosa restaurant in Navy Yard, Chef Joancarlo Parkhurst prepares his signature Puerto Rican dish, the chuleta kan kan, a fried pork chop with the belly attached and flayed out to resemble a mohawk. With its unique presentation and mouth-watering flavors, the chuleta kan kan is a must-try for anyone seeking an authentic Puerto Rican dining experience in the D.C. area.

    La Famosa does its best to put you smack in San Juan ... the pork chop squirts juices at the touch of a knife.
