Tasca el Pescador
Located just south of the tourist-laden Condado neighborhood in Santurce, near the 100-year-old Plaza del Mercado market, Tasca el Pescador is a popular haunt among locals that is known for its fresh seafood dishes. The small, unassuming restaurant is packed with tables and has a glass display case showing off the day’s fresh fish. Popular menu items include the chillo entero frito, a whole fried red snapper, and the arroz con calamari, made with rice, squid, and squid ink.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
