If you're looking for good creole (or criollo, as it's known in these parts) in the metro area, look for El Jibarito. Located on calle Sol, this is a mom and pop eatery that's almost like being invited to a Puerto Rican's home for a meal. The tried and tested favorites are the chicken fricassee, conch ceviche, lechon asado or the plain and simple arroz con gandules. They also serve an assortment of empanadillas, plantains and seafood. The menu changes everyday, but the customer always wins.

Location:  280 Calle Sol

Business hours:  Mo-We 7:00 a.m.-7:00 p.m., Th-Sa 7:00 a.m.-9:00 p.m.
