Owner description: South Fortaleza Street is known for its trendy restaurants.
Reviewed April 26, 2016

Locals usually refer to SoFo as a part of Fortaleza Street in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico. There are many Restaurants in this Area and many other Restaurants very close in Old San Juan Area. From small, local food joints to expensive Chef supervised Restaurants. Fortaleza Street also have shops and more shops, etc. in a Historic Area that is worth strolling around.
Usually early in December the Fortaleza Street is closed for cars and a Festival takes place with music, show's and specially food where you can taste treats from Restaurants in the Area. Dates can be seen in Local Newspapers or Internet but you can be lucky if you are here at the time. It can be crowded and traffic jams are expected during the 3 day festival.

Strolling through this food festival made for a great evening. You can carry your alcoholic drinks on the street as you check out all the food options, live music, and social scene. Buskers entertained, and the people watching is great.

South Fortaleza street has a great variety of restaurants. These, during SoFo, offer some of their light plates or specials for the day in a casual atmosphere. A great way to experience a taste of their flavors. Our favorite this year, Dragonflys noodles.

We had no idea this event would be going on during our trip - amazing surprise! We heard great music, danced some salsa and drank rum with the 'president' of Columbia and his tennis team! We met so many wonderful people the first night, we couldn't help but go back every night! Great experience - great surprise!

Literally the best food, cocktails and music available in SoFo (South Fortaleza street in Old San Juan) offered to taste/enjoy in the middle of the street at great prices.
