Years ago, I read a Gourmet article in which the chef Alberto Ayala raved about the pique sauce he buys (in reused rum bottles) from a stand in the Santurce market in San Juan. (Stand is described as "opposite the market's south entrance"). So I went there when we were visiting, and got two bottles. years passed - Ran out. A kindly chowhound friend visiting went and got me two more bottles and mailed them to me. More years passed - Now I've run out again! But have two friends making a short stopover in San Juan next week. Before sending them on a potentially wild goose chase, does anyone know what that status is of the market since last year's hurricane? And particularly if the stall selling this sauce is still making and selling it
