Earlier this week we talked about my five lessons for best enjoying Saborea Puerto Rico. I’ll show you today why you shouldn’t miss the most important culinary showcase in the Caribbean.
New restaurants for culinary adventures
My friends and I are already planning road trips to visit delicious “new for us” places like Asadura in Luquillo, and Asador San Miguel in Naranjito.

Winery Experience in Puerto Rico
We love to do wine tastings and visiting wine countries in general. The Ambrosia Fine Wines area in the middle of the Tasting Pavillion brings the tasting room experience to Saborea Puerto Rico. The delicious wines and knowledgeable pouring staff will guide you through the wines and suggest pairings from the featured Saborea restaurants and food artisans.

New Products Showcased
Our favorite discoveries in the new product front were the versatile recipes from La Hacienda Foods, the micro-greens from Tropical Fresh, and the delicious Empanadillas Geometricas available to purchase by the dozen. Those will come in especially handy next time we’re having a party. The chicken curry and carnitas ones blew our minds.

Chef Talent for Sunday
I cannot stress this enough. All the chefs we talked to yesterday are incredibly approachable. We bumped into a few in the Tasting Pavillion and didn’t hesitate to ask questions about recipes and their restaurants. Whatever your kitchen conondrum, take it to the experts. And chances are you will learn a trick or five by sitting in the GE Monogram Demo Kitchen Theatre.
