I'm meeting up with a large group of eight long-time friends for a boys weekend in San Juan, staying with one member of the group who lives there. Most members of the group aren't food folks (if I didn't go they would probably go to Burger King for most meals) BUT with the support of one game member of the group I am able to cajole them into eating adventures that they end up really enjoying. For example, we had a similar weekend in PR about 10 years ago and we "stumbled" on Pinones and ate amazing fried stuff. We'll probably revisit Pinones but what are some other fun and delicious local, regional and relatively inexpensive places that we should check out? We obviously aren't looking for romantic and we don't need fine dining or imported, fusion or international. Just honest, delicious and great.
One wrinkle is that we have a vegetarian in the group this time, so some consideration is a good thing, but obviously PR is a tough place to be a vegetarian and he knows it. I realize it's short notice but if anyone has a favorite can't miss place speak up! Thanks!
