Food Tour: San Juan, Puerto Rico

The travel bug has bitten again, and today’s dreary weather isn’t helping either. To top it off, this time last year I was here:

Poolside - San Juan, Puerto Rico

Beautiful, sunny San Juan, Puerto Rico.

I miss sipping on coconuts by the poolside, I miss my palm trees, I miss feeling the sand between my toes on the beach… heck, I even miss how the sand just got EVERYWHERE! And obviously, this foodie misses the food. Even living in NYC, it’s difficult to find authentic mofongo, so if you discovered a place, please let me know in the comments!!

As a native New Yorker, I am used to stupid, expensive prices for small portions of food and I expect the same in any tourist area. So I was pleasantly surprised to find that the tourist areas in Puerto Rico, or at least all of the places I picked, had affordable prices for good portions of food, sometimes even a bit too much.

There were times waiters would politely let us know that we ordered too much food for just two petite girls. It was fun to watch their reactions when we finished or ate more than expected, and it was even hilarious when a large man eating the same dish next to me tried to keep up, but tapped out in defeat.

But I digress on this Foodie Friday! Here are some of the locations/dishes we enjoyed… well the ones I actually remembered to take pictures of before devouring them.
