This dish may not surpass versions in south Florida, but it’s the best one in the desert. Expect a mound of rice stained yellow from saffron, slow-cooked with onion, garlic, green pepper and a highly season, flavorful half-chicken. This mountain of food is crowned with a pair of fried plantains, a starchy Cuban cousin to the supermarket banana. Before you order, warm up with a potent rum concoction from the bar. $16.95, 8878 S. Eastern Ave., 932-9310.
