Old San Juan, Puerto Rico - Updates on your favorite Native "Comida Criolla"?

rssfromsf | Mar 4, 2005 05:25 PM

I'll be in San Juan for 8 hours next month on a Monday from 2pm to 10am...

Do you have any RECENT updates for great native food,
and additionally perhaps recommendations for Non-Tourist and/or Local places to visit?

Here are a couple of updates I have seen recently, but they haven't been mentioned on Chowhound:

1/7/05 - Article "There’s more to San Juan food than room service at your resort"
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/6338897/

2/9/05 - DFriia's very nice chowhoundish travel journal on San Juan:

Cafeteria Mallorca:

(Check out the 4 photos here! -- yum mallorcas!
Note: They had heard mention about "cranky, gruff waiters" at La Bombonera, so they went here instead because the food is supposed to be just as good here.)

La Fonda El Jibarito:

(Check out the Cabrito in the attached Photo #2 on this day)

(See also attached Photo #10 on this day)

Right now, I'm leaning towards visiting both Cafeteria Mallorca and La Fonda El Jibarito.

Note: DFriia has never posted here. I've asked them to think about posting here sometimes, because they have SO much to offer...

Thanks in advance for your tips and leads!
