Rincon and the Porta del Sol Restaurants

If you like seafood, you're in the right place. Throughout northwestern Puerto Rico you'll find wonderful criollo (Puerto Rican creole) cuisine. Most local eateries serve deep-fried tapas, commonly called frituras (meaning "fritters"). Offering a break from fried food are dozens of foreign-owned eateries that serve everything from sushi and hamburgers to vegetarian and Thai cuisine. Farther south along the coast options are limited, so you may want to ask the chef to grill or sauté your fish. A trip to Puerto Rico is not complete without sampling Puerto Rico’s most iconic dish, mofongo relleno, made from fried, seasoned and mashed plantain or yuca stuffed with your choice of seafood or meat. Simply head to where locals from all over the island go for fresh seafood—Joyuda. When it comes to beverages, locals usually drink rum and coke or mix it with fresh-squeezed orange or grapefruit juice. You’ll also see people sipping on Medalla Light, Puerto Rico's most popular and affordable beer. All restaurants are no-smoking. Tips, normally 15%–20%, are usually not included in the bill, but it's always wise to double-check.
