“La Isla del Encanto” – Dining in Puerto Rico – The Best Food on the Island

Buenos Dias,

My name es Cesar Castro and I’m going to tell you a little bit about dining in Puerto Rico; the best food on the Island. I was born and raised in Puerto Rico, and lived on the island for 22 years, so who better to tell you what to eat while you are enjoying the beaches during your next vacation to Puerto Rico?

Asopau de Camarones – You can find this delicious dish in Isabela, right near the beach, where you will find many restaurants that serve this dish. This dish is made of fresh shrimp, potatoes, sofrito, and tomato sauce and is often served with fried plantains. Believe me; if you are a seafood lover, you can’t miss this dish when you visit the Island.

Bacalaitos – You can find these in any restaurant on the island. Bacalaitos is basically fried cod fish, but with a unique taste like no other. While being fried in peanut oil in huge pans, near the salty windy air of the beach, you’ll find it hard to have only one.

Rellenos de Papa – These are a “must have”. These curious looking potato balls stuffed with meat are the best. You can find these anywhere on the island. These usually go for about $1 a piece and like I said, they are so delicious that they are addicting.

There you have it. My top 3 picks for dining while you are visiting my beautiful Island, Puerto Rico. Until next one “Y que pasen un buen dia”

  1. All I ate when I went to PR was mofongo with criollo sauce – I tried it for the first time here, and now I’m completely HOOKED. So delicious!

    We also had a fabulous time at a restaurant called Yerbabuena in San Juan – it was a completely last-minute decision, as it starting storming, and we just found a place to go hang out for the evening. The best part was the band, who handed out maracas and other instruments for the dining crowd to join in on the fun 🙂
