La Jaquita, as it is known by locals, is one the city's best farm-to-table restaurants. Chef Xavi Pacheco elevates commonly home-cooked Puerto Rican dishes. At this casual eatery in Miramar there's a small recreated farmer's market in the corner, which showcases the chef's committment to sourcing directly from the producer. While you browse the menu, a complimentary pigeon pea escabeche with plantain chips will be brought out. The menu changes frequently but staples like
the fish tacitos, smoked pork, and homemade sausage are fixed items. The house drink is the white or red guarapeta, a sangria made with guarapo (sugar cane juice).
