We tried mofongo at the suggestion of every local we ran into in Puerto Rico. We tried it at at least 5 places and this was hands down the best we had on our vacation. Eat it. It's that simple.

A bit out of the way, but GPS's are wonderful. Sit outside and enjoy a very cold one with one of the better meals you will find. It was a Gustazo that brought us there but we will be back again and again.
