What's "authentic" to you. 

Mofongos?  Several places serve these, including Raices, Café Puerto Rico, El Jibarito, Punto de Vista ( Milano Hotel), Barrachinas, etc.

Mallorcas:  Café Mallorca, Café Manolin, etc.

Loncheria: drive to Cayey and visit the Guavate area ( 45 minutes to an hour from San Juan).

Just had a mufongo in Genesis served by Jose. Easy walk from the ship, full of locals, plain decor but big plate of excellent food.

We've had the Mallorca at Cafe Mallorca & La Bombonera a few times, but we think the best was recently at the Choco Bar.
