Comida de San Juan, Puerto Rico

Coconut Pancakes
Mofongo(fried green plantains)
Portobello Gnocci 
Avocado with curried vegetables

It took everything I had not to title this post- I came I saw and I ate.  Also known as- What I do every time I go somewhere. I don’t consider myself a foodie but a quick glimpse of this blog will show you that I have yet to meet a carbohydrate that I could not get along with.  

The internet tells me that Puerto Rican food is a blend of Spanish, African, Taino and American influences. I can tell you that every menu I looked at had avocado, rice, beans, and plantains.  I did a lot of eating but I also did a lot of walking up and down the cobbled streets of San Juan. I think it was fine balance for a good trip. 

Have a great week!

    We really don't play when it comes to our avocados. I wonder how they got the green plantain to look like that.

      No we don't do we. There are a lot of great recipes for Mofongo online.
