Guavate is an area that is designated as a
district as part of the larger town of Cayey, which is in South-Central
Puerto Rico. It’s a mountainous, forested area that has become known
over the years as a favorite recreational spot for Puerto Ricans — and
as a result, has created an entire culture dedicated to eating
traditional holiday foods, such as Lechon (Roast Pork) and Pavochon
(Roast Turkey — see Daisy’s Recipe).
A single road which passes
through the town, Highway PR-184, also known as as the “Pork Highway”
has many restaurants which specialize in these two dishes and all their
accompaniments. Which one is the best? It’s hard to say.
Your best bet — and our overall
strategy — was to see which parking lots are the busiest and have the
most amount of people eating there.
