Isla Verde


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.

Yum Yum Tree


Critics rave about the chicken with cashews, but if you're not quite in the mood for tradtional Chinese, sushi choices are also available. Housed in an unassuming, small building in the financial district, Yum Yum Tree is heavily populated with business-types at lunch, but for dinner, couples and singles take advantage of the intimate setting.

New Taste Chinese Restaurant


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.
