Yup. Fried Green Plantains all mashed up with garlic, oil, pork cracklings, in this tall wooden vessel (a pilon), and what looks like a bat, think a giant mortar and pestle, but taller, deeper and wooden.

When I saw your pic of the Mofongo with Shrimp I thought "Man that looks good" But now that you have explained what's in it I realized I have had it. There is a little Paladar we go to all the time in Cuba that serves it. (although not so nicely presented) Over there it's called Fufu.
