Notes on Puerto Rico:

-Butter is very commonly used in veggie dishes (including the plantain base of mofongo), so ask about that
-Many restaurants close at 3 or 4pm, including nearly all veg restaurants so plan ahead
-Nearly all the restaurants are closed on Sundays, minus Oscar's in Rio Piedras
-Batidas (like smoothies) are offered EVERYWHERE but usually contain milk so be sure to ask for it without
-A lot of bakery in delis and groceries (like cinnamon cookies and guava pastry) happens to be vegan so check ingredients
-Restaurants that don't offer veg options are often willing to make something not on the menu, using whatever ingredients they have
