On my recent journey to Liliw, Laguna to chase waterfalls, I have learned of a different kind of gem that the locals have been raving about. Most of them head to Mabini Street not to buy the famed Liliw Tsinelas (Slippers/Footwear) but to get a taste of their favorite Rice Toppings from Kuya Bal’s Chao Fan. But what is so special about Kuya Bal’s Chao Fan that the locals just can’t get enough of it?
When I first wandered on the streets of Old San Juan Puerto Rico, I visited the famous sites in the city and that walking tour definitely made me hungry. Good thing I have passed by some place where I can find local Puerto Rican street food. But I would have to suppress my appetite for Puerto Rican street food until our next call.
Aside from Forts that are recognized as UNESCO World Heritage Sites and other remarkable landmarks along its streets, Old San Juan is also a foodies’ heaven. From authentic Puerto Rican food to Spanish inspired and international fares even food trucks, every corner and every turn has its own culinary delights. There are budget dining options to upscale restaurants that will fit anyone’s budget.
