We found this place hidden behind a store as we walked through the Old San Juan around dinner time. We ordered tostones with shrimp and the pulled pork (pernil). The pernil came with two sides and it was plenty of food!! Everything tasted really good! We really liked the garlic shrimp tostones and the pernil was super tender and flavorful.

LOVED this place. We went to a lot of different restaurants in San Juan, and Deaverdura and this were our favorites.

It's a little hidden (you have to follow the signs and go through the little tourist shop to get to it). But it's a cute little gem that a lot of the locals go to.

We got the Pernil (slow roasted pulled pork) and Jueyes (crab meat). The crab meat pile was HUGE and absolutely delicious, and the pork was great as well -- but I recommend the crab. And definitely get the sweet plantains and mamposteao (a local, more flavorful take on rice and beans).
