Featuring the only tatami room in Puerto Rico, the waitresses wear kimonos and serve in traditional Japanese style. The house specialty, Sushi Pizza, is anything but traditional though as the crust is made from deep fried rice then layered with rows of fish, ginger and spicy-hot wasabi. Teppanyaki tables are available for fans of culinary theatrics.
Ashford Avenue, just steps from one of the more lovely beaches in San Juan, is filled with shops of all types and restaurants of every cuisine. But you'd be hard pressed to find better than New Taste, if you're craving dim sum as authentic as what is made in NYC's Chinatown. The setting complements the food. Gaze over the Laguna del Condado as you dip your dumplings in some spicy sauce and enjoy.
