Fodor's Expert Review Toro Salao

$$$ Old San Juan Spanish

The name means "Salty Bull," and there's something about this place that makes its moniker entirely appropriate. (And it's not just the bullfighting posters that decorate one of the two-story-high walls.) At this Spanish–Puerto Rican tapas restaurant, there are plenty of small dishes to share, such as the queso fundido (a melted-cheese dish) and Spanish-style flatbread pizzas, called cocas. The dining room, with a bar lit up in lusty red, is pleasant enough, but the tables that spill onto the adjacent cobblestone square are even better, perfect for people-watching. Pair your tapas with a tropical white sangria, infused with brandy, or our favorite, the refreshing rosemary mojito.
