I was in the mood for paella so I went direct to El Zipperle a German old fashioned restaurant in Hato Rey metro area of San Juan. Was not my first time, and I had a great paella pan at my table. All that big rice plater for me, it includes lobster instead of shrimp, a great flavorful chorizo and chicken and clamps.

Service is slow, slower than anywhere else but if you have time this is the place to go for tradition in Puerto Rico

Excellent Spanish and German (?!?!) food in a cozy German-style setting. The service is a bit slow, but it goes with the Spanish tradition of enjoying your meal without any concern for the time spent with good friends, drinking wine and savoring tapas. The pulpo a la gallega and the sopa de frijoles negros are highly recommended!

Even though the service is not so good and kind of slow, this spanish place is a tradition in the San Juan area. Food is a little expensive for the service you get, but it's a nice ambiance with live music on friday night.
