Puerto Rico, or the Isle of Enchantment, may be best known for its beaches, but the food rivals my grandmother's Cuban home cooking. Sorry, Abuela!
I don't know much Spanish, but I became quite accustomed to asking for Huevos Fritos Con Jamon y OJ (okay, so that's Spanglish), please.
The saltiness of the ham went well with the medium fried egg, and the buttery bread was perfect for sopping up the yolk. Each texture compliment the other and I couldn't get enough of the bread's crisp crunch.
Our Pork Medallions stuffed with Ground Beef and wrapped in Bacon was so tasty, so delicious, so out of this world, I don't even know how to describe it. The bacon added a hint of sweetness to my palate, while the capers brought a balance of salt.
I felt heavy and bloated after loading myself up with protein and carbs. Thankfully, the dish was worth the food baby.
I'm sorry we devoured the Lamb Skewers too quickly to take photos, but new flavors developed with each juicy bite. The dish also went surprisingly well with my White Wine Sangria.
Next up came the Shrimp, Boquerones & Squid Pizzetta. The light-as-air crust didn't overpower the dainty toppings, while the cheese brought a richness to the flavor profile of the seafood. If I could eat this pizzetta once a day for the rest of my life I would, I swear.
