Erik’s Gyros & Deli, Luquillo Puerto Rico

Located just a few minutes from the Balneario Monserrate beach and a 10 minute drive from the town of Fajardo, is Erik’s Gyros & Deli. We stumbled upon it while searching for a good place to have breakfast at. The restaurant is small, there was about 6 tables and it takes a little while to get your food since it is freshly made. So when you visit, keep this in mind and remember: good food happens to those who wait.

I ordered a mimosa, it should be illegal to not have one while on vacation, I’m not sure if they use fresh orange juice but it sure tasted like it. To accompany my mimosa I ordered the “Tortilla Española”, a potato omelette with spinach and I also had it topped with Chorizo. The picture below doesn’t do it justice!

My boyfriend had an ice tea and the “Churassco a Caballo”, a bed of potatoes topped with sirloin steak and eggs in a delicious creamy sauce with bread on the side. It sounds mind blowing right? Well it was! Even the bread was delicious because it soaks up the creamy sauce making it 5 times more enjoyable!

We were extremely satisfied (& full) with both of our meals. The service was great. Make sure you keep in mind the location is small and it will take a while for you to get your food. If you go with realistic expectations and the patience to go along with it, I promise you will be satisfied as well. Bon appètit!
