San Juan Puerto Rico recs

Going late Jan. and staying at El San Juan Resort-any good places nearby or can take cab for authentic PR food or other good recs-kinda like fairly casual-hate to dress up! Talking about plantains. mofongo etc. Thanks!

  1. Moderator has asked me not to post on restaurants I am not currently visiting but your query tempts me to incur his wrath. The Metropol, 999 Ashford Avenue, Isla Verde, is within walking distance of the El San Juan---it shares a parking lot with the Club Gallistico (cockfight arena). Sounds exactly what you are looking for---excellent local food, casual ambience. Look for many reviews online.

    1. Thanks so much for the rec!
