Restaurant El Jibarito
A Puerto Rican Landmark, Restaurant El Jibarito has been serving authentic 'Comida Criolla' (Puerto Rican traditional food) in Old San Juan for over 28 years. The food is very fresh and served by a friendly staff in a setting that feels as if you were eating in the mountain home of Puerto Rico's famed Jibarito farmer.
Enjoy excellent Puerto Rican fare such as 'Pasteles' a native style tamale filled with either chicken or pork or Mofongo a popular dish made from fried green plantains which is mashed together with broth, garlic, olive oil and pork cracklings. Try your Mofongo filled with shrimp, seafood, chicken or beef... delicious! Other fabulous dishes to savor include a succulent fried Red Snapper, Steak with onions and much more. All dishes can be accompanied with rice and beans, sweet or green fried plantains as well as other local favorites.
If you would like to experience a traditional meal as enjoyed during the Christmas Holidays in Puerto Rico, order the special holiday plate which comes with a Pasteles, Arroz con gandules, Lechón (Spit-rosted pork) and sweet fried plantains.
End your meal with a decadent Tres Leches (Three Milk Cake) or a tasty Vanilla, Coconut or Cheese Flan (Caramel Custard) and one of the best cups of coffee in San Juan.
