Jose Enrique Puerto Rican Restaurant

La Placita, San Juan
View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

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.
