Favorite Puerto Rican Recipes
Pork is the king of proteins in Puerto Rico. It’s so loved that there is an entire street in the mountains of Cayey dedicated to the whole roasted pig. The area is called Guavate and if you ever find yourself in Puerto Rico you must visit. The weekends it’s packed with people eating, drinking, and dancing.
