Alcapurria - An alcapurria is made from a doughy mixture of mashed tubers and root vegetables that grow on the island. The dough surrounds a center of heavily seasoned meat. Cooks spoon the meat into the center, roll the alcapurria into a distinctive peg shape and deep fry it for several minutes. The dough surrounding the meat, the masa, is made primarily of green bananas and yautia and may contain grated calabazas (tropical pumpkins), potato, plantains, and other starchy tropical tubers.
Sfiha (Arabic: صفيحة sfīḥah), also known as "Arab Pizza", is an Arab pizza-like dish originating from the Arabian Peninsula and Levant, and introduced in Brazil by Levantine immigrants, where it is known as esfiha. In contrast to the modern use of lamb or beef, traditional sfiha are open-faced meat pies made with ground mutton. Historically, sfiha were much like dolma—simply ground lamb, lightly spiced, wrapped in brined grape leaves.
