Eating like a king at Mi Vida Café & Burger in Puerto Rico

Yet another fantastic plant-based meal!

This cafe is on the same little happening street as Degree 18, along with a few other places I plan on trying. The way people drive and park here is new to me; refreshing actually. There are no meters you have to pay, as a matter of fact it doesn't matter what side of the road you park on either. The people are smart enough to just drive whatever way is needed to proceed. There was a gravel parking lot across the street from Mi Vida Cafe. It was FREE also! This restaurant was awesome. Yet again everybody spoke English great, they were very hospitable.

I ordered a smoothie, empanada, burger, and quesadilla.

More details below.

I was happy Mi Vida was open, the other restaurant that I went by was closed.

I wanted to order a papaya smoothie, but they didn't have any papaya. So I instead ordered mango. It was delicious, and had tiny chunks of ice in it.

I am growing very fond of empanadas. I really had never eaten them before until this week. This one was filled with quinoa and vegetables. I covered it with their house sauce. I was told it was a mixture of cilantro, mayonnaise, and a few other secret ingredients.

The quesadilla was my favorite. It was filled with a colorful variety of vegetables. I also added black beans, pico de gallo, and mofongo. The mofongo (fried plantains) made this quesadilla the best one I had ever had. It was sweet and full of flavor.

The veggie burger was phenomenal, it was a bean burger. The grilled onions and mushrooms made it even better than I had hoped. The potato "chips" looked like crunchy chips, but were soft like french fries.

I didn't get a picture, but they brought their condiments out in an empty six pack of beer. I thought that was very clever.

I sat on this couch for my meal.
This quote translates to :
"How long will you stay with me?
I prepare coffee or I prepare my life?"

I didn't order any coffee, but I will the next time I eat there. It sounds to me like the owner prides himself on having his coffee creations ahead of his own life.
Now that is dedication.

[email protected] , Me has dejado pensando en PR y el clima, la gente y como dijo alguien acompanando la empanada con una cerveza alemana, americana; nada que no me imagine o conozca. Disfrutelo.
This friend let me thinking about a little place at PR and their food, but I was thinking about warm of the people and weather.
Enjoy it.

·

The weather and people are fantastic too! The food is just another positive addition.

·
·

@daltono Yes, is incredible how ease you can enjoy the life in ease way in PR

I see a nice and comfortable place, and the menu is very nice in my opinion.

·

Indeed it was. Thank you for taking the time to leave your thoughts 🤝

Wow, it looks like those foods are really delicious.
You forgot to mention the price of each food?
How much each those cost?

·

Great question!

Smoothie - $5
Empanada - $3
Burger - $ $9
Quesadilla - $ 9

Total - $30 + tip

·
·

wow, they are not cheap.
Really funny price if you compare that to our currency.
those are really expensive my friend.

·
·
·

😞 I know. Prices here and in the United States are ridiculous. This meal was “cheap” compared to what I am used to paying. I want to live some place where the cost of living/food is much lower.

Okay let me give you an idea the equivalent of those to my country Philippines.

If you buy those outside a mall below is the equivalent.
Smoothie - $5 ( 4 smoothies in my country)
Empanada - $3 ( 3 empenadas)
Burger - $ $9 = (3 burgers)
Quesadilla - $ 9 = (sorry not sure about this one)

I guess the reason the price is high because you bought them inside a mall?
or a well known food & beverage restaurant? am I right?

·

WOW! That is so much cheaper. I am jealous.

No I bought at a very small cafe. For some reason everything is exspensive in my part of the world.

Yeah, I think this is one of the reason.
Why often foreigners chose to retire in my country.

By the way I can buy a pair of slipper here for only $1 dollar.
I know this is not the cheapest price here but regularly this is the price of slipper I buy often.
How much is the cost of the cheapest pair of slipper in you country? lol

People in the USA sometimes pay over $1000 for a pair of “fancy” slippers. It makes no sense to me. Still, even “cheap” slippers cost over $30. Maybe some places will sell for under $10 if we are lucky.

Hola amigo,

That vegan meal look so delicious and I would devour them all....I am hungier now since about to prepare ramen noodles soon....

Your meal looks 10x more delicious than my simple, humble and Asian fast noodles I can cook fast...

·

It was delicioso!

My Airbnb host left ramen noodles in my fridge. I haven't eaten them since college, and won't be anytime soon. I spoil my belly these days.

Thanks for stopping by my new friend.

·
·

Sounds like your appetite for finer food has taken over since college.

Feel free to check my latest posts as well. Best wishes

·

Awesome! Thank you. That looks great, although I am more interested in that German beer in the corner.

·
·

Germany is worth a vacation! Feel free to visit ;)

·
·
·

Thanks my friend.

·

No, you're definitely a computer. And what is your fixation with God? No one said you were God.

·

Can't I prepare both coffee and life in harmony? Great post!

·

My husband and I have been wanting to take a trip to PR, any suggestions on where to stay to get the most authentic stay. We dont want to do anything too touristy.

·

You sound like me. I didn’t want a tourist vacation either.
There really are so many options here.
I wanted to be close to El Yunque and Vieques, so I am staying between Rio Grande and Luquillo. I still have easy access to San Juan too.

There are many surf towns in the west coast.

I recommend using something like AirBnB so that you can get a home instead of a resort/hotel.
Many other questions feel free to ask, or check my recent blog posts. I’m on day 3 of 14 or my visit.

i fined this blog quite interesting
@daltono

Thanks!

·
·

its my pleasure
@daltono

Last May I saw that spot and I've been wanting to try it. Looks like the perfect place to fuel up before hiking the "El Yunque" trail to the top. Enjoy your PR trip.
