If you try something new, you might really enjoy it, even if it's filling balloons with Hot Wheels and throwing them off a bridge to see if they'll float. Try some Latin American fare with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Puerto Rican cuisine at La Cocina Boricua.

La Cocina Boricua's spice-wielding savants take tongues on a trek through the exotic flavorscape of Puerto Rico with an extensive menu of authentic Latin American cuisine. Treat cochlear passageways to the toe-sauntering sounds of an in-house salsa musician while muffling tremolos from hungry stomachs with a starter of mixed empanadas—three breaded pockets stuffed with chicken, beef, cheese, and guava ($4). Diners can grind incisors on a meaty, bean- and rice-accompanied entree, such as the Puerto Rican style pork chops ($12) or the chicken breast soused in mango sauce ($15). For lighter bites, explore La Cocina's wide selection of seafood ($14–17), salads ($6–18), and soups ($12–17), all of which reserve stomachy real estate for the Amor Dulce—a fried banana caramelized with rum and served aside rich vanilla ice cream ($5).

Liquids lavishly adorn La Cocina Boricua's tables, including 10 different mojito concoctions such as peach, apple, and watermelon ($8 each). Sip on any while seated in the restaurant's cozy, brick-lined dining room, which boasts a rustic, earthy palate accented with Puerto Rican pictures, lending the eatery an atmosphere ideal for a casual night out or a date with an epicurean spice miner.

La Cocina Boricua

A cavalcade of steamy soups and toasty empanadas marches forth from La Cocina Boricua’s kitchens, where chefs douse succulent cutlets of chicken, steak, and pork with the piquant sauces that characterize Puerto Rican cuisine. The menu bursts with fresh seafood, creamy custards, and tropical plantains that strike an accord between sweet and savory as glasses filled with sangria and flavored mojitos clink in approval. Walls flecked with traditional and modern artworks add color to the restaurant's earth-toned interior, which regularly comes to life with the sounds of live salsa music or poets reading the metered cadences of Roberto Clemente's batting averages.
