Perfect place to taste the real Puerto Rican Fritters - Kiosks at Piñones Feb 07, 2009
Usually we hear that in order to try the real food from somewhere, you have to go where the locals go. And this statement is 100% true.
If you are in Puerto Rico, you can't miss the kiosks located at Piñones. Along the avenue, which becomes a narrow path, you will find different kiosks where you can stop for a bite, which is actually not little but incredibly cheap.
The avenue skirts the ocean and beach, becoming later a narrow path (cars can't go in both directions) full of kiosks. he kiosks are small roadside shacks and patios housing haphazard cooktops of cement and iron, producing the most intoxicating aromas and every native treat that exists in Puerto Rico.
But don't stop in the first that exhibit all the food. Since all these treats are fried, better go a bit further and stop where they cook in front of your eyes. Just let them know, what you'd like to eat and they will fry it right in front of you. They also have chests with some sodas, water and beer. Don't expect anything fancy. This is more like a street vendor style. Restaurants / kiosks are very simple and the people working there are really kind and friendly. If you don't like what you are eating - I mean if it's not cooked properly - they won't charge you for that and you will get a new one.
Nevermind, food is delicious and you can see why this area is always crowded. There are many people who drive there just to get the food and take it back home. We were there for lunch - actually a bit later, but have been told the place is packed at night where you can enjoy the food, drinks and also some salsa.
Don't be afraid to try the food at this kiosks, go for it and be sure you won't regret it.
