No air travel yet? Take a culinary vacation. This Puerto Rican restaurant serves hearty, subtly spiced dishes with all the flavor and less of the heat of some Mexican and Tex-Mex fare. Order this to go: the chuletas a la Borinquen: thick, center-cut pork chops marinated with garlic and pineapple. They come with a Caribbean version of aromatic fried rice and your choice of savory or sweet plantains (go for the sweet!). Pro tip: Take home a dozen or so flaky empanadas to heat up later.
