Pasión por el Fogón

Pasión por el Fogón Review

At one of Fajardo's most beloved restaurants, owner Norma Guadaloupe will no doubt greet you at the door. Chef Myrta Pérez Toledo possesses a talent for taking traditional dishes and making them into something special. Succulent cuts of meat and fish are presented in unexpected ways—witness a perfectly cooked flank steak rolled into a cylinder standing on one end. But what makes this dish remarkable is the slightly sweet tamarind sauce that brings out the meat's earthy flavors. If you're a seafood lover, start with the lime-infused red-snapper ceviche, and then move on to the lobster medallions broiled in butter. For dessert, order the "Caribbean Sun," a version of an ice cream sundae that blends caramel, cinnamon, and chocolate toppings.
