The big island’s cocina criolla combines Spanish, American, and First Nations influences into a cuisine like no other in the Caribbean. Pork and peppers dominate the ingredients. Lechón asado (roast pig on a spit) is an island-wide passion while the use of peppers in both traditional and nouvelle dishes is an art form mastered by only the best chefs. Old San Juan and swank Condado are both culinary hubs in the capital, but even roadside stalls will blow your mind and taste buds.

Local Favorite: Pikayo restaurant in San Juan.
