Eating the Island: Preface

As you all know, I spent a lovely week in Puerto Rico with my boyfriend and his family.  I love love love Puerto Rican food.  It is a wonderful fusion of Spanish, African, Taino, Chinese, and much much more (thanks colonization, slavery, and immigration!) Bottomline: Everything is so flavorful and bursting with cilantro, garlic, onions, tomatos, and other aromatic goodies!  

Unfortunately, I couldn't share my food ecstasy with you due to not having an internet connection.  This sucks because it made me look like a blogging bum and now I have to marathon.  But its worth it since I want to share good food with the world!

So, instead of doing a giant entry, I will be breaking down my food coma in parts covering the following restaurants

  • Metropol in Fajardo 
  • Bebo's BBQ in San Juan
  • Aguaviva in Old San Juan
  • La Bombonera in Old San Juan
  • La Parilla in Luquillo 
  • El Nuevo Rancho and Los Pinos Lechoneras in Caguas
  • The Don Q Rum Museum in Old San Juan
  • Cremaldi Ice Cream Shop in Fajardo
I'll also be covering some tasty eats made by my boyfriends grandmother (Mami).

Yes I ate a lot.  So close your eyes, grab a straw hat, sit and the sun, and pretend that you got to eat with me in Puerto Rico!
