  1. Mofongo for sure. Food court, Plaza Colón.

    1. Must eats would include pasteles, lechon asado, platanos in various forms from escabeche to fried.
      Tembleque. Mallorcas.
      Do not miss bacalaitos and other fried treats!

      We tried mallorcas as Cafeteria Mallorca in Old San Juan and I liked this homey diner-type restaurant.

      I wrote a report here about my experiences about a week ago.
