In the residential district of San Juan, right off the main drag of Avenue de Ponce de Leon, is a wonderful Puerto Rica-Peruvian fusion restaurant called “Lima” that you simply must try. This particular area of town is hopping on the weekends but quiet on the weekdays, and Lima is so popular that they have valet parking on the weekends. The menu isn’t too terribly pricey, considering the awesomeness of the food you get. The have good drinks (the bartenders down the block at Bistro 160 pour a better drink) that indulge in twists of Puerto Rican rum with Peruvian elements, like a deep purple sangria. They have a wide variety of ceviches, from straight white fish to shrimp to octopus to a mix, and all of them are delicious. They make friend plantains properly and they local pork and chicken dishes are great, and the plating of even the simplest salad is fun. Grab a spot on the patio, knock back a Medalla, and enjoy your time in one of the lesser-tourist-trod restaurants in the San Juan area of Puerto Rico.
