In her restaurant, Cocina al Fondo, located in San Juan, she seeks to maintain that origin and that simplicity. She uses the caldero, the stews, the rice dishes, while looking for that Caribbean flair on the plate with colors and flowers. Her menu brings the countryside to the city, tradition to modern life. Traditional dishes, such as rice with rabbit, are served with Arabic notes to amplify the traditional recipe. Vallejo says her chicken broth, made with so much love, has made more than one diner cry, for reminding them of their grandparents.
