These Puerto Rican eateries are beyond delicous!
September is Hispanic Heritage Month, which means it is time to celebrate the different histories, cultures, and contributions of Hispanic Americans. As part of this, we decided to round up our favorite Puerto Rican eateries!
Here are 5 Puerto Rican restaurants in San Diego that are must-visits on any day, but especially during Hispanic Heritage Month!
1.Jibaritos De La Isla
Jibarito’s de la Isla serves up delicous and authentic Puerto Rican & Dominican food! Owner and chef Ana Rivera was born and raised in a Puerto Rican community. She now creates delicous food inspired by her favorite family recipes like jibarito sandwiches, arroz con gandules, tostones, flancocho, and more!
Location: 5080 Bonita Rd
2. Wanda’s Puerto Rican Cuisine
If you’re a fan of empanadas, you have to try these! They are so delicous we simply love them. Wanda’s also serves up outstanding red rice recipes and has the best dipping sauces in town.

3. Tainos Restaurant
Tainos serves up delicous and authentic Puerto Rican comfort food. This pop-up event Restaurant holds events one Saturday a month. You’ll be able to enjoy a four-course meal with your choice of appetizer and entree-YUM!

4. AntoYitos Borincanos
Sisters Jennifer and Nadeshka Roman founded this authentic Puerto Rican eatery out of a love of cooking passed down to them by their father. Sadly, he passed away, and they have dedicated AntoYitos Borincanos to his memory. We recommend Mofongo Relleno, a mashed plantain filled with your choice of meat!

5. Tropical Star
Tropical Star is the place to go to dine in or carry out your favorite Puerto Rican cuisine! Their menu also has authentic Cuban, Central, and South American dishes. They import many special ingredients from the Caribbean, Central, and South America. This makes their food much more special since many of these ingredients are unavailable elsewhere.
