When in San Juan Eat As The Greeks Do

When in San Juan Eat As The Greeks Do

Think, instead, about all the other cuisines on the island: tangy tzatziki, a perfect blend of Greek yogurt, chopped cucumbers and dill, served with hot pita bread. Or Italian wedding soup, thick with its little lamb and Parmesan meatballs and al dente pasta. Or delicious dim sum, in its seemingly infinite varieties. Or a taste of bouillabaisse that’s so authentically French you can feel the afternoon Marseilles sun on your face while you eat it.

I actually used most of it for adult beverages (mango-chile mojitos and passionfruit mojitos), but in return for their help, […]
    • Mango Mojitos With Ancho Chili Salt August 15, 2015
      It was another summer Friday in the neighborhood and that called for another festive cocktail. Riding high on the success of last session’s passionfruit mojitos, I decided to make mango mojitos.
