La Mallorquina

This eatery was established in 1848, which makes it the oldest still-functioning restaurant in “the New World”. The house specialty is the “asopao,” a thick, savory, rice-based Puerto Rican soup that is cooked either with chicken or seafood. A must try for those who would like to experience something new.
