Chef Jose Enrique Restaurant

Chef Jose Enrique Restaurant by www.carlosmeliablog.comChef Jose Enrique Restaurant  |  Santurce, Puerto Rico  |  I found the perfect excuse to come and explore the upcoming and trendy district of Santurce, Puerto Rico. Located only 10 minutes walk from Condado and 10 minutes by car from my headquarters at La Terraza de San Juan in Old San Juan. This restaurant is the classic example that a book should never be judged by its cover and that first impressions are not always the right ones. Seen from outside, Jose Enrique looks like a regular restaurant, but trust me you are in for a gourmet treat, if you follow your instincts.

FYI each time you visit is a new gourmet experience, since there is not set menu, and everyday is a new selection.  Continue reading Chef Jose Enrique Restaurant
