San Juan, Puerto Rico
This was very good. The salt cod stew was excellent. It was well seasoned and flavourful. It had tonnes of onions and a some red peppers that had been stewed in a tomato based sauce with the salted cod. It was reminiscent of some Portuguese cod dishes that I had had before. The only bad thing about this dish was that the crostini started to get soggy as it sat on the plate...but that was easily fixed with a knife and fork.
For my main dish, I ordered the Churrasco or grilled skirt steak cooked medium. I also opted for French fries as my side.
The French fries were the homemade type. They were not the pre-cut frozen type. They reminded me of my mom's fries (so so good) and along with the fries a simple salad accompanied the skirt steak. The skirt steak was delicious. It was perfectly cooked. It was simply spiced which said a lot about the cut of the meat. Really really delicious. I enjoyed this dinner very much.
What had been an unplanned dinner to simply get out of the rain turned out to be an excellent meal. If you are in Old San Juan, give this place a try.
