Puerto Rican Food in Photos

Let there be mofongo!

Below are some snapshots of some delicious meals you can find within Old San Juan. Many of the restaurants can be a bit pricey in the city, but we found that some of the more affordable restaurants (entrées less than $12) can deliver a meal that is just as tasty — with the fancy presentation included. You may, however, just have to lace up some walking shoes to do a little exploring.

While enjoying all the fresh food do not forget a nice cold beverage. Remember, to have some Bacardi. If you are not into rum, I recommend to skip the “traditional” Coca-Cola and be adventurous — try coconut soda.

Enjoy the pics. (Buen Provecho.)

In Puerto Rico, yes there is warm weather, beautiful beaches, and plenty of salsa music — but do not forget their authentic food. Whether it was breakfast, lunch, or dinner — every taste was unique and every bite was memorable. One bite, and like me, you will have a craving to return for more.
