    I spent 9 nights in Puerto Rico and quite enjoyed my first visit to the popular Caribbean vaca destination. Just for the record I have loved the Caribbean very, very much since my first visit to the Bahamas as a kid and I always said I would do them all up in my lifetime. I hope this report lives up to my last trip down there's chronicle. My good friends marriage down there finally gave me a chance to cross Puerto Rico off the list. I also only spent but a few hours in San Juan which were when I was flying in and out and renting the car. My buddys wife is from Mayaguez which is on the west coast and it PR's third largest town and is host to the 2010 Central American and Caribbean Games later this July. We stayed in the town next door called Rincon, which is a very popular surfers destination. We got an amazing villa right on the beach at a great price and I quite enjoyed my trip on all levels, food included. The west coast might not be as well known but its got as much going on from a Caribbean feeling standpoint.

    En Route to the West Coast on the night of our arrival

    I am going to go through my eats one by one, day by day. The first place we stopped at was a panaderia while we were driving from San Juan to Rincon. Puerto Rico has a ton of bakery's and is a place where I ate alot more pastries and treats than I do here in the states. Baking yummy donuts and such is one of the islands food specialty's. I pulled over when I spied Brendalis bakery and hopped out for a quick snack for the ride to Rincon.

    Image
    The first place I stopped the people were as nice as could be and it continued all trip

    Image
    Puerto Rico is by no means a healthy eating island...

    Image
    ...but that doesnt mean the foods not good

    My favorites were the two long pastries in the back corner that were filled with cheese and I loved the coconut cupcakes with a cherry on top. The family that owns this place has been baking there for a while and were so so nice.

    Image
    Everywhere you look and turn there's roadfood

    Puerto Rico has a ton of actual roadfood. There are 1000s of food trucks that are mobile, 1000's of food trucks that are no longer mobile but serve food where they lay at rest all day and 1000's of people who set up shop along a road by bringing their bbq grill and a few tables and chairs for the customers to sit at and then packing it all up when the day is over. If I had my way I would of stopped at 100's more of these spots because I wasnt able to get to some which were high on my list and came rec'd by locals and my buddys wifes family. There will be a next time for me in PR. My first meal of the trip wasn't even Puerto Rican food but instead popular Venezuelan sandwiches that were very much enjoyed by me and my two buddies who flew in with me. The corn based fried bread is shaped similar to a pita and stuffed with many different things as you can see on the menu below.

    Image Image

    These sandwiches with bread made of corn are pop. lunch in Venezuela

    The dude who owns this truck is from there originally and moved to Puerto Rico where with his brother he operates two of these food trucks. One is near and or in Rincon on a main highway and this one was maybe 45 minutes outside of there. We were off to a wonderful start and just my type of stop. After we finished talking some Cubs baseball (Big Zambrano the obvious topic) I asked him which was the most popular and he told me the ones filled with beef, chicken, shrimp and cheese. I got one of those along with a carne and a pollo. When you put the homemade cilantro mayo and hot sauces on these sandwiches it took them to another level and already had me thinking about going back later in the week and this was just our first stop.

    Image

    Image
    The most popular at the stand: chicken, cheese, shrimp and beef...YES!!!!

    So after those we were on our way into Rincon which is where we would be staying. Our first two nights we stayed at a place on the water called the Lemontree Cottages and they were wonderful hosts and also hosted a group of my friends thru the Sunday after the wedding. I moved about 500 feet down the block on Wed. when another group of 8 friends landed and stayed at a spectacular villa named Villa Orleans. I would highly rec these spots to anybody thinking about a Puerto Rican vacation. The West coast is a place that I think is great for families and all other crowds. Its peak season is November thru Easter. There are casinos and tons of daytime activities on the West coast for people of all ages and all walks of life.

    Image

    The first night we made sure to take care of some things that needed to be done to make sure over 30 friends of high school and college would have an absolute blast in Puerto Rico, and you know we did. While Bacardi is a Puerto Rican rum it was and or is owned by a Cuban family that moved to PR so the locals rum of choice is Don Q cristal. I quite enjoyed the white make and didn't suffer from one hangover from rum the whole damn trip like I do in other Caribbean islands. The stuff was excellent and I brought a couple big bottles back. Just like every other Carib island, Puerto Ricans know how to party and our gracious hosts. If I told you about the whole nine days it would take me a month or two to make this post. I will say that I cant wait to head back so you know I had a great time. I met tons of locals and tons of people from NYC, NJ and elsewhere that moved there or are from there and or spend time between there and the states. Whenever there was a language gap (I should of paid more attention in Spanish class) a local or former local back on vaca was happy to help although it didn't happen but a few times, its still pretty easy to communicate if you only know a little Spanish like I do and many locals can speak a little or alot of English.

    I love cruising thru towns and did so to many on my trip

    The next day (tues) which was our first full day on the island we set out to cruise the coast and do some good eating and other things to go with it. I went prepared and did my research and was lucky enough to be sent a list of spots I should try that the locals love from my friend the brides parents. Before we set out for a coast cruise we stopped for breakfast at a very popular empanadilla restaurant on the ocean that was a 5 minute drive down from where we were staying.

    Image
    Kaplash is a popular stop with everybody and I really liked it

    comidas criolla, a Puerto Rican empanadilla

    Its pretty well known that alot of stuff is fried in Puerto Rico and that's true. It also means alot of stuff is going to be pretty good, especially when paired with a cold one. These little treats were great. The beefs were really good but their specialty was a seafood and red sauce stuffed version that I couldn't eat enough of.

    Image
    Kaplash house named seafood empanadilla

    So after a late morning breakfast we were on our way south down the coast of the country to check out some spots that we were told we had to go see and of course there was eating involved. I know that there isn't much fresh seafood on the East coast of PR but that's not the case on the west side of the island. There are some great little stops along this easy and max relaxing drive. The roads are in great shape but the locals do drive a little crazy but nothing anyone from Chicago hasn't seen. The country is pretty similar to Jamaica in landscape because there are lots of villages and towns in the mountains as well as along with all the beaches on the coasts. We would of course make it up into the mountains too.

    Image
    cruising the mountains

    The town of Joyuda is just south of Mayaguez and has a bunch of seafood restaurants sitting right along the water and across the street. Johanna's (the brides) favorite is El Gatito. Ask for the fresh fish of the day. Unfort. El Gatito was closed when we were cruising thru so we didn't stop in this seafood town on our first trip down the coast. Instead we kept cruising and ended up in Cobo Rojo for a quick tour of the town. The drive down and up the coats can easily be done in a day, its really easy to see the whole island if you have a few days.

    Alot of towns were very fun spots to visit for a quick walk around (Cobo Rojo, Puerto Rico)

    Image Image
    Rex cream is a popular ice cream station with spots around PR, I like their pina colada flavor.

    After a walk around Cobo Rojo we headed over to Boqueron which I had read about from HERE. On our first full day it was just me and two other buddy's who arent fresh oyster and clam eaters but I was very happy to be visiting this popular wkd destination with locals. On a busy day the street along the ocean will be filled with food vendors with most of them offering fresh caught oysters.

    We visited Boqueron on a Tuesday in the middle afternoon so it wasn't to busy but there was still a real nice crowd of locals at this open air bar right on the corner located from the street out to the beach. It was right out of the movies as the open air bar served great drinks and had two pool tables a electronic jukebox with every song and album in it. We sat our happy asses down and had the drinks come a flowing.

    Image
    View of the beach upon leaving the bar

    This place was so cool and everything you think of when you think Caribbean vacation that I had decided that it would be our stop for Fridays itinerary where we would rent a school bus to bring a group of 25+ down here for a day of drinking and sun and sending our friend off to the chapel the day before his wedding. Both visits were highlights of my trip and I had a great time and wouldn't of done it any other way. Everybody had a blast here on Friday and it was 90+ and super sunny out, so I stayed inside the bar blasting tunes and throwing down shots of Jack and Cuba Libres with some rum punches and Medalla Lights to chase them with. Like always we left having the locals love Chicago as we put alot into their community on our two days spent there. The beer of choice is Medalla light and they come served ice cold everywhere in 10 oz cans and always cost a $1.

    Image Image Image
    Medalla Light, Rum Punch and Cuba Libres (along with lots of shots) were consumed all week long

    We then headed to the brides parents place in Mayaguez for dinner and drinks and to watch the Blackhawks game. Sooneafter the game we headed on back to our villa in Rincon to get ready for Wed. which was a day many people would be arriving in PR for the wedding weekend.

    Image Image
    Homemade hot sauce was also applied generously all week long from everywhere we went

    So then it was off to more cruising on Wed. morning. Our first stop of the day was to a place that had alot of good reviews and wasn't but a 5 minute drive from Villa Orleans in Rincon. I read many a great review about this somewhat new place called El Fogon De Le Curva where they roasted a pig everyday and had great food and was a great place to eat in the area. Its owned by a former New Yorker named Tommy and along with his partner, Freddy, the fisherman, they run a sports bar like restaurant connected to a fresh fish monger outlet next door. This place was awesome and we stopped in at least three times on our trip. Tommy made me feel right at home as if I was sitting at Glascotts or Toons watching baseball, which Puerto Ricans love, so there are so many stadiums all over the island. Tommy and his lovely wife who's from Puerto Rico and his business partner Freddy got it going on.

    Image

    fresh roasted pig served everyday made in this

    This is the only time on my report where I'll merge a few days since we couldn't get enough of the people that run it and the food they serve. Tommy was so cool that he insisted in his thick New York accent (he insisted I had a Chicago one) that whatever we drank, to let him know and he'd get us a bottle or tree of it if he didn't already have it. So he went and got some bottles of Jameson for us to down on our visit to Rincon. I think all drinks here were $3 except the Johnnie Walker black and blue labels and the food was pure Puerto Rican, amazing, both the land and sea dishes were all some of the best eating one can do when on the west coast of Puerto Rico. Everything is made fresh from scratch at this spot. Even better is the fact that the fish market next door is open from 1-6p daily and opens when Freddy comes back from his morning fishing. So since this place was right by our Villa Orleans we grilled some fresh caught tuna and snapper we bought from here on our last night in town.

    On our first visit around noon on Wed. we wanted to get a bite to eat before we headed off to the coast again to visit the seafood village Joyuda mentioned above and some other stops along the way. We ordered and were hooked up with quite a few things on our visits to El Fogon and I quite enjoyed them all. I will go thru them with you pic by pic.

    Image
    Tommy was a cool dude and a helluva host and made sure we ate right (fresh fried pork skins compliments of the house)

    Even though Tommy was an Italian New Yorker who married a Puerto Rican, he is also a BBQ dude. He originally moved back to PR with his wife to raise there daughter and opened up a smokehouse in Rincon where he served ribs smoked on his smoker he brought over with him from NY. After selling that place he opened up El Fogon De La Curva a few years after and has the game on lock. His pigs are full of flavor and come in all sorts of different tasty ways to chow on.

    Image
    Pig Head, Tommy made sure I got cheek meat everyday I was in there

    On our last day we headed over to buy the fresh fish to grill and drink some rum punch and eat some bombass lunch before our fresh grilled fish dinner. Tommy and Freddy took me to the fish cleaning room and showed me what was caught that morning including this live monster lobster which would quickly become our lunch.

    What a lunch it was, grilled with butter and garlic...GREAT!!!!

    So getting back on to my day by day eats track. We headed back down the coast on Wednesday morning and went to eat a late lunch in the above mentioned seafood village, Joyuda. The restaurant that came rec'd wasn't open again so we tried this other cool spot with a back dining area right on the water.

    Image
    Joyuda, Puerto Rico is a seafood town with lots of it

    We were here for seafood and specifically lobster. As was to be expected in PR, the fried lobster came rec'd by a couple next to us from Jersey originally from there and we also got a butter, garlic, pepper, onions and live topped one to go with some fried chicken, tostones and shrimp cocktail.

    We then went to meet my boy and his bride at a yacht club and boat harbor somewhere about an hour from where we had ended up when cruising down the coast.

    Image
    Spent Wed. evening boating around the waters

    Since this was a destination wedding I had quite a few things to do and parties to attend and so believe it or not, this was kind of a tame trip for me as far as visiting food stops. However my buddy's brides parents knew they had alot of people from Chicago coming down there and weren't going to let us leave without getting a true feel for what I believe needs to be our 51st state. Its quite possible that the best meal on my trip came from a party hosted by her parents at their house the Thurs. night before the wedding, who acted on the suggestion from me to my friend that they have an authentic pig roast dinner. Well it was out of this world good. We spent the morning and early afternoon on a small island about 10 minutes off the west coast called Gulligans island and the gracious hosts they were, made sure we had sandwiches, bakery goods and tons of liquor complete with bartenders. The island was awesome but the party at her parents place after was legendary.

    Image Image
    Gulligans Island, PR

    Thursday was a real long day but well worth it when the party started and the visitors in town for the wedding were treated to an authentic Puerto Rican pig roast amongst many other great eats. My guys wife's dad and mom know how to throw a party and they got a friend who does up these roasts all over the island by hauling his pig roaster bbq on the backhatch of his pickup and goin to wherever roasted pig is needed.


    Man oh man, was this pig good...

    We arrived on the scene at about 4p and the pig was spinning away as seen in the video above. Of course me and a few friends went and got our drinks and hung out with the first family of Puerto Rican pig roasts as it crisped up into sheer goodness. They had the whole fam working on this thing and along with the pig they were serving yuca, blood sausage, yellow rice and Puerto Rican pasteles and some other things I'm most likely forgetting.

    This pig had the crackliest mouth watering skin I ever had, I ate most of it as I sat there and they went to work on it, chopping away, they kept handing me pieces of crispy skin. They were thrilled how into it we were.


    all day long....


    Pro's at work...look at that skin piece!

    Image
    Pure Puerto Rico

    After a long night of entertainment and great music it was back to Rincon to get ready for another day of drinking at the beach. The next morning we awoke in a haze from rum and pig and decided we needed some fruit in our life. So me and a buddy took a ride to one of Puerto Rico's abundant fruit stands along the roads. I didn't get a chance to make it to the Mayaquez farmers market but it goes on every day of the week (except Sunday) and is said to be flooded with tropical fruits of all sorts amongst other things. I plan on doing that for sure whenever I take my ass back there. The people running our villa (Villa Orleans) are great folks and told us everything we needed to know and had no problems with our large group. I was even offered to be taken to the market by one of the people who runs it but couldn't make it b/c we were headed for another day of drinking.

    Image
    We spent $41 at the stand and came back to the house with a bunch of everything, my favorite being the small Caribbean bananas which you see in front. They make for great banana mudslides, which was the drink of choice on the wedding morning at our villa.

    We had a schoolbus pick up about 30 of us that Friday morning to take us back to Boqueron so chill at the beach and the bar all day long. It was the wedding mans last day of freedom before the machine said "Game Over" the following day. People had a blast in the town as we took over the bar and a dock where boats pull up to stop in for a drink and some of the famous foods from the stalls that line the streets. It was a great day and great way to send off the groom. The next morning was the wedding day and me and a buddy awoke and decided to take a ride into the town of Rincon which I had barely seen up to that point.

    Image Image
    Said to be the best place in the Caribbean to catch some waves

    Image Image Image Image
    (Rincon, Puerto Rico) Like every other neighborhood in PR they have a few baseball fields and a couple basketball courts but Rincon also has an amazing sporting complex, way better than any neighborhood in Chicago has. They also have a hockey team (hey, if Jamaica has a bobsled team...) and yes a rink that it plays on.

    After cruising around and snapping some photos of the main strip of Rincon me and my friend wanted to get something to eat and needed something in our stomachs that would soak up some alcohol. So we decided on another food truck, this one specializing in fried chicken.

    Image
    Nieve's had a few locals picking up and leaving and smelled magnificent

    Image
    Similar to Harold's and other Chicago fried chicken spots, the fried chicken came loaded with fries on top and was blasted in ketchup and hot sauce. The chicken was awesome, full of flavor with the skin being very thin and the meat cooked to perfection. All for $4 with drink.

    After the expert fried chicken we went back to the villa to make up some mudslides and start getting ready for the reason we were down there, the wedding. At about 3p there was a bus arriving to pick us up and bring us into the center of town in Mayaguez where the wedding and reception were taking place.

    Image
    'cause we goin to the chapel! and then we goin to get tipsy!

    Image
    Lucky for us the reception was right across the street from the church. The food was amazing, I had so many good things including about 40 fresh oysters I cant begin to remember all if it but Puerto Ricans take food and weddings seriously so you can imagine the love put into everything. Not to mention open bar with lots of shots of black label and amazing expert made mojitos all night long.

    As far as weddings go, it was about as good as it gets. The night, or morning, ended at our villa as we threw the after party for the newly married couple and everyone that wanted to come. The house was in surprisingly good shape the morning after but still needed a real deal cleaning so as most people left to head back to Chicago, a group of four us planned what we would do with our Sunday. I had a specific spot in mind up in the mountains that came highly rec'd by the brides dad for a place world famous for its ice cream. So we were off to the town of Lares. When traveling to Lares from Rincon you go thru San Sebastian which has a really stunning waterfall.

    Image Image

    One of my buddy's has an iPhone and it worked great as far as getting around. We never had any trouble and found our destination town of Lares, Puerto Rico with ease.

    Image

    Image Image
    Image Image
    Image Image
    It was a Sunday on our visit so the center of town had a little festival going on with vendors of crafts and foods alike. As a little app. to the ice cream I got a papa rellano (potato ball filled with beef) and a fried salted codfish cake.

    But the reason for our visit to this tiny little town in the mountains was for some of its world famous ice cream that we were tipped off on. I was told as so "There is a famous ice cream joint in the town of Lares. Johanna's dad said just go to the town and ask where it is. Apparently they have crazy ice cream flavors like rice and beans ice cream. I think this town is in the middle of nowhere so it may not be worth driving there just for that. But might be a nice mission for you." Well I talked to her dad all week long and he kept asking me if I had made it there yet and I always felt disappointed when I had to say no, so for someone who calls no mission too much, you knew I was going to make it. We learned it was from a place called Heladeria Lares. They weren't lying either when they said it would be easy to find, it was packed this Sunday afternoon.

    Image
    World Famous Puerto Rican Ice Cream Shop in Lares, PR

    This stop was one of the most interesting and fun parts of our trip. We and one of my two buddy's who were up there were very excited to try as many of this popular ice cream shops variety of flavors. Of course they had all sorts of fruit flavors but they also had, red beans and rice, bacalao, rice pudding, corn and so many others, I couldn't keep track. But I did snap as many pics as I could of the types offered. I wasn't the only one who came up there to try this place and was snapping away photos. As I was doing so, there were a bunch of people from NYC and the east coast who were doing the same.

    Image

    Image

    Image

    Image

    Image
    My flavors lined up: Red beans & rice, rice pudding, corn, strawberry, pine-banana.

    Image
    The Red beans & rice was my favorite of them all, hinted with cinnamon it somehow worked so well.

    After our trip up to the mountains we decided to head back down asap because one of my good friends wanted to catch the Blackhawks game and so we rode back to our villa in Rincon. We were pretty out of it all day Sunday but I felt like I needed to document another spot so me and another friend rode to this authentic Puerto Rican roadside stand not but 5 minutes from our place. I had been riding by it all week and wanted to get in there to try some of their comida criollas, which is just authentic Puerto Rican dishes.

    Image Image

    So we hope you enjoyed your e-trip to the West Coast of Puerto Rico but we are sad to announce this is where it ends. I went to a few other places I will try to get around to sharing one day but these stops documented on here foodwise were the highlights of my foodventure. I was really taken in by PR and when I consider I got my ticket from Chi for $260 RT and paid a sick price on our amazing villa and was able to rent a car with other travelers it was a really cheap vaca as well. Obviously I liked the food alot and enjoyed my trip so much so that I have to get back, not just for the food and fun but to say whats up to all the great people we met on our journey thru Porta Del Sol. I would encourage you to take the family, wife, girlfriend, whoever etc...in the near future when your feeling like some island entertainment. I don't have addresses and stuff to share but its all easy to find and the locals love to help. If you have any questions or if your thinking about taking a vaca out that way, just let me know and I'll be happy to help. As mentioned above the accommodation spots that took care of most of our Madison and LP group of friends were excellent hosts and great places to stay. The Villa Orleans was loved by all who stayed and everyone gave me mad props for finding such a great place at an amazing price. Check it out of your going to head down.

    See ya next time on Caribbean livin'.

    Da,

    What a fantastic post! Obviously, a great trip, wonderful descriptions, fantastic images and obviously, some phenomenal food, too. I'm virtually speechless right now but I really appreciate you posting this, especially given how much time it probably took to compose it. Thank you, for sharing.
