Where she posts recipes of great puertorican dishes. In her last post she covers some of the street/beach/neighborhood food a lot of us grew up with. I took my kids over xmas and we hit some of the highlights.

That would be the ubiquitous sign that precludes running a tab.
One of the great street foods in PR are pinchos, which are seasoned pork or beef skewers cooked over charcoal and served with bread and a beer.

Another great place to eat in PR towns is in the local panaderia or bread/pastry/deli

lunch

where you can go for a sandwich or more fancy fair, such as white asparagus

Flan

or octopus salad

Along the beach in Luquillo there are some very well known stops for a quick or not so quick meal. We sampled a few such as pionono
(plantain stuffed with beef)

Lobster empanada

no hay nada mejor que irse a dar un paseo por Piñones y comerse un bacalaito frito o por El Triangulo en Guayanilla; allí la ultima vez que fui con mi esposo y mi mamá, comimos ensalada de mariscos con mofonfo los tres... mas las medallas por el lado y pagamos como $55. 00 por los tres... y que me dices de las chuletas kan kan .... wow!!

En piñones hay una señora en una casita que hace un arroz con jueyes buenisimo, no se si tiene nombre pero mi padre siempre para a comprar. En verdad me han gustado muchos los links de cuchifritos y chinchorros de tu post.
