Fodor's Review

The Cortés family has been making bean-to-bar chocolate for over 85 years and in 2013, they openend up Puerto Rico's first Choco Bar to share their passion with the world. The walls in this vivid, modern space are decorated with vintage ads from the 50s, original chocolate bar molds, a timeline of chocolate, and two flat screens that depict the family's chocolate-making process. From pastries to tapas, breakfast dishes to panini sandwiches, the chef successfully integrates

chocolate into every bite without overpowering the dish. Try the ripe plantain mofonguitos filled with chocolate and bacon bits. The pan-fried jumbo shrimp with a chocolate lemon sauce are delicious! Locals from all over the San Juan Metro area flock to ChocoBar for weekend brunch—arrive early to avoid a long wait. On Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday head upstairs to the gallery for a glimpse of the family's private art collection.
