I don’t care, I don’t care, I don’t care! Yes, I had Jamaican food in Puerto Rico, and it was good! Before the last two major hurricanes hit the island in 2017, I took a trip to Old San Juan and visited the El Morro. We did a lot of walking in the sweltering Puerto Rican heat. It took every piece of energy we had out of us. To cool off and relax before heading back to our hotel, we stopped for a bite at a Jamaican restaurant called Blessed Cafe.
Finding Blessed Cafe was a true blessing. The entire vibe was exactly what I needed during our short trip. The food and service were great. My meal was on the spicy side, but outside of the heat, everything was on point. I was very pleased. We had oxtail with red peas and rice, a delicious, flaky beef patty, and a plate of stew chicken. Once we were done with our meal, we stopped for a refreshing piragua and headed back to our hotel near Condado Beach.
I’m delighted to know that the restaurant survived the hurricanes. If you are in the Old San Juan area, be sure to check out Blessed Cafe!
