Restaurant Reviews, News and Articles
On an island of over 4 million, there are tens of thousands of restaurants. Our writers do their best to cover the most must-taste and must-avoid from every walk of culinary delight, coast to coast.
Here is just a fraction of what we've found and are reporting on.
Latest Restaurant Headlines:
El Taino Restaurant Fails to Fail Customers Any More - Over the years we've gone to places we've loved for free and we've gone to places we liked well enough without any consideration. Heck, we've even gone to places without consideration we've hated, but imagine this; we've gone to places by invitation and for free that we've also strongly disliked… this is one such place.
Fun Valley Park Café Cuts Visit Costs by Half - One of the most enjoyable things we did in Puerto Rico was our visit to the kooky amusement park near Arecibo called the Fun Valley Park. I guess it was in a valley and I'm pretty sure it was a park, but what I know without a doubt is that it was fun. Only thing that could have made it better was the café, which did make it better, both by price and quality.
Avoid Leugim's in San German No Matter What - By day, this sleepy café adjacent the historic plaza is a great place to stop off for a quick respite from the often unrelenting seasonal rains, as it was for us. What lies in wait for you at any hour of any day is something quite different, and it's not just an intrinsic deception, it's as often an outright nightmare.
Carlito's Bar & Kitchen an Ideal Stopover Dive - Traveling west on the southern coast of Puerto Rico, between Ponce and Cabo Rojo, you aren't going to find a whole lot of reasons to stop. There are periodic festivals, and the town of San German has it's own quaint charm, but you may just be passing through in hopes of finding food or gas. Gas is easy enough, since the service stations down there are fair and reasonable, but let me throw in a quick vote for where you should eat.
McRestaurant McAlmost McReminds McMe of McHome - If you've ever traveled, whether it was across town or across the world, the one thing you wanted more than unlimited outgoing calls from your room was something familiar that reminded you of home. In my case I could think of nothing better or more familiar than passage of those golden arches through which kids come out happy and cows come out hamburger.
Taco Maker Makes Decent Tacos at Lackluster Prices - A fairly common chain around the island of Puerto Rico is Taco Maker, and it looks to be an upscale Taco Bell, a Taco Time sort of place, if you will. The problem is that you're an awfully long ways from Mexico, and that's not a concern in and of itself, since Taco Bell ain't exactly Mexican food. Still, if you want to know if you should pay a visit, consider this.
If You're Ever in Sabana Grande, Try Nicky's Pizza - If you're ever in Sabana Grande, and honestly I can't imagine why you would be, you'll find there's nearly nothing in terms of tourist draw. The buildings are quaint and rustic, the people are as friendly as anywhere, but strangely this is a town that really likes pizza, and Nicky's is a good choice.
Brazilian in Atlanta Hits the Spot - I'm not a snob when it comes to food, so when I was asked by my editor to review everything authentic I could find in Puerto Rico, I had no problem saying yes. I was there for almost three months, and I found some really interesting finds in the mix. What I found most interesting was how much I missed American levels of service and the really unique finds like the Red and Green Steakhouse in Atlanta.
Puerto Rican Restaurant Boasts Playground, Pony Rides - Just off Highway-2 in the south of Puerto Rico (about twenty minutes west of Ponce) is the sort of restaurant you read about. I know I read about it on roadside signs in a good 30-mile radius, so when I had the chance to dine at Gaby's World, I jumped all over it and was rewarded in ways no restaurant has ever even tried.
