San Juan has tropical produce, Atlantic and Caribbean seafood, and Chuck tastes it all on Fortaleza Street. At Aguaviva, Chef Hector Cresto teaches Chuck how to catch spiny lobster in the ocean and then turn it into delicious ceviche with coconut cream and lime. At Siglo XX, chef Olga Flores and Chuck use an enormous 54-inch paella pan to make seafood paella for 80. At Cafe El Punto, Alejandro Jeffs teaches Chuck how to make a traditional mofongo with skirt steak that rivals that of any Puerto Rican grandmother. Then Chuck washes it down with coconut water straight from the source at Santana Nubios' street stall, Cocos Frios.
