Mofongo in DFW?

I just came back from a trip to South Florida. I went to Benny's and had their Mofongo, I am still dreaming about it.
Anybody know of a place in DFW that serves it?
Mi Tierra in Arlington and Isla Mia in Carrollton both had Purto Rican chefs that made excellent mofongo. Unfortunately both closed recently. I don't know of any other place that serves it. Caribbean Cafe is a Cuban place that may be able to make it for you.
I just returned from a cruise in which one of the stops was San Juan and had my first taste of Puerto rican cuisine (lil place called Cafe Puerto Rico in the Plaza Colón near the port) including Mofongos, and I'm hooked! I am in search of a restaurant that serves such cuisine in DFW and haven't had much luck...I searched for Mi Tierra in Carrollton and found nothing...the one in Arlington as mentioned is closed...are you sure that's what it's called in Carrollton? Thank you...
Many of those restaurantes mentioned are now closed, and they weren't really that great. But Adobo Puerto Rican Cafe is now open in Irving. They have a great mofongo with the real Puerto Rico taste. But not only the mofongo, chuletas, pernil, arroz con gandules, alcapurrias, pasteles, etc. Even real Puerto Rican pan sobao. They bring the bread from PR, Los Cidrines. Is a small place, somewhat crowded, you may need to wait, but worth waiting for great real testing PR food.
