The Puerto Rico Hotel and Tourism Association disclosed details Tuesday of the “Saborea Puerto Rico Summer Party,” a new event to kick off the summer, and complement the promotion of culinary initiatives on the island, while showcasing the best in local cuisine.
The event will take place Thursday from 6:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. at the Caribe Hilton Hotel, said PHRTA President Clarisa Jiménez.
“We want people that enjoy our food to not have to wait until April of each year for ‘Saborea Puerto Rico, a culinary extravaganza’ event,” she said. “This is why we have created this series of additional events so they can enjoy good food and many beverage stations in a celebratory environment to welcome the summer.”
“Our food has so many attributes that we have chosen more than 15 of the best restaurants to have a station where they can offer their delicious dishes,” she said.
The roster of participants includes: Marullo Art Cuisine; Tanamá Restaurant @ Holiday Inn Ponce; La Casa @ Royal Isabela ; MBTI; Zest Restaurant; Paellas y Algo Más; Perurrican; Caribe Hilton Hotel; Wok Asian Catering; Lola’s Eclectic Cuisine; Yam Burger; Passion Sekua; San Juan Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino; Shima’s Restaurant; Made in Puerto Rico; Chef Marilyn; Sary’s Basket Cake; and Vany’s Cakes & More.
Meanwhile, Cervecera de Puerto Rico, Destilería Serrallés, Henkell, La Cava de Serallés and Mixólogos de Puerto Rico will be on hand to provide the drinks.
During the event, the PRHTA will also recognize the three winners of the “People’s Choice” awards voting that took place during Saborea Puerto Rico in April, namely Aguada’s Marullo Art Cuisine, Tanamá Restaurant @ Holiday Inn Ponce and La Casa @ Royal Isabela.
Tickets are $65, or $50 if purchased with a MasterCard debit or credit card, organizers said.
