good restaurants near Conrad

Traveling Thanksgiving week with my twin sons (age 15).

Looking for good restaurants (we are not picky, appreciate good food) that teenage boys will not go hungry at.

Want t stay away away from American type, touristy places.

Seafood, Puerto Rican, local flare is what I am looking for, that wont bankrupt me!

Also wear should we go on Thanksgiving (dont need turkey...just a fun place)

Its not hard in that area or Old San Juan. Its very simple, if you see an obvious name you recognise from the Continent, don't go there. Members will speak up shortly with fresh recommendations.

Try the Wackicki about 3 minutes from the Conrad across from the infamous Chili's.

I would try Casa Lola for thanksgiving, call them up and see if they will have a special menu.

Within walking distance you have Ropa Vieja, Perurrican, Il Postino (good for breakfast). Also Ben & Jerry has a decent -and cheap- breakfast. Farther down on Ashford Ave there's Mona's, Buns burgers, Yerbabuena and Oceano. Pretty much anything along the ave is pretty good.

Bebo's near Condado, and Cafe Manolin in the Old San Juan. Can't get more authentic and less touristy than these 2. Both serve large portions.

Trust me, I know. My Godson is 17 and I've seen how much he eats. And still won't gain a pound somehow while I get fat just by looking at his plate(s)!!

Any local restaurant you go to in PR will serve plenty of food: a protein and usually 2 carbs: rice and plantains or potato, plus beans. That should be enough to keep your boys happy.

Abother great place not far from Condado is Pueblo supermarket. Also serves large portions for lunch, which about $5.00.

Picayo at the Conrad is very good, but my favority is Perla in La Concha.

These restaurants are on the expensive side, so you might consider it for a special day. The view from both places is outstanding.
