Healthy San Juan Dining

While the island of Puerto Rico earned a reputation for delicious but fatty fritters, rice-heavy sides, and exquisitely roasted pork (no culinary tour is complete without a trip to the famous pig-roast stalls of Guavate), there are healthier alternatives on San Juan's menus, thanks to a growing number of chefs cooking with a lighter, more local, and modern touch.
