Touring with the Chef
Touring with the chef @ Mercado Urbano – Ventana al Mar, Condado
Every first Sunday of the month, the Ventana al Mar in Condado is converted into an urban market. Your chef/tour guide will walk you between over 40 vendors (farmers and artisans) from all over the Island that set up their stalls to showcase their locally produced goods.
At the produce market, our visitors can shop around and purchase fruit, vegetables, cheeses, honey, coffee, freshly-squeezed orange juice, medicinal plants, organic yoghurt and traditional staples amongst other things. Meanwhile, your guide will explain and provide lectures about each product and present to you our native dishes and recipes.
After you’ve had time to purchase and taste some of the goodies of the island, dessert and coffee are on us!
We will then visit next door beautiful ocean view restaurant Perla, located inside the exclusive La Concha hotel and owned by renowned chef Dayn Smith for choice of a nice and warm chocolate soufflé with vanilla ice cream or a coconut cream custard or what about an orange cream brulee, delicious!!
Don’t miss this wonderful way to spend the afternoon, browsing the local Puerto Rican products, fine dining with friends and family and all while having a conversation with your personal chef overlooking the ocean.
A three course tasting meal (with or without wine pairing) can also be arranged at additional cost.
Please note, this tour is only available every first Sunday of the month.
