Local chef Jose Enrique’s namesake restaurant is on just about every list of the best places to eat in San Juan (including this one), and is a great spot to try classic Puerto Rican dishes like filete encebollado and longaniza. The setting is simple and unfussy—all you’ll find on the white walls are a couple of mirrors and some art. The crudo de atún and the bacalaito appetizers are excellent, as are the carne guisá with a side of mofongo and the pollo chupa plato. Whatever you order, end your meal with some queso del país for dessert.
