Cafetería San Miguel in an uexpected residential zone of San Juan serves the most straight up Puerto Rican Criollo dishes for lunch, also they Dominican style dishes and even serve fresh seafood on selcted days.
The place for lunch is about to burst with how many people are eating at that time. From lawyers to teachers to cunstruction workers and people like me that do not want to cook their lunch. The place stays very busy throughout the business week and even Saturdays.
The traditional arroz con habichuelas (white rice and beans), fried plantains, simple garden salad, mofongo among other side dishes accompany churrasco, cod salad, lamb tenderloin, fried chicken, garlic shrimp, pork chops and many other great food items prepared by local hands and cooked to our Boricua seasoning.
Located in Country Club, San Juan, a mostly working class residential neighborhood, this eatery is totally out of your usual tourist places and a great way to experience tasty food in a true local sense.
They accept cards and cash, and is very busy they serve fast!
