Now this is a much more difficult question to answer than breakfast. In Puerto Rico, lunch is serious business, whether you're in the mood for a sandwich (and if you are, may I humbly suggest a tripleta, an imposing triple-decker of  three types of meat that will satisfy most appetites), a typical Puerto Rican meal at a local fonda, or a crispy, greasy, succulent bite at a roadside kiosk.

A Puerto Rican lunch can be many different things, some of which may sound totally alien to you no matter how many years of Spanish you took in school. Not to worry... I've got the basics of a Puerto Rican menu to help get you acclimated. And I've even got a few tips on what to order at a kiosk to help acquaint you with some of the foods you won't find at your local diner.

I always recommend that visitors to Puerto Rico enjoy at least one authentic lunch. If you've never been here before, I can all but guarantee that you'll find something on the menu that you've never tried.
