This was my first time trying Puerto Rican cuisine and I couldn’t have asked for a better introduction! My wife and I started with cocktails — mojito with passionfruit for me and a “Passion Quickie” for her — then split a stuffed yucca appetizer. Our entrees were both mofongo — conch in the criolla sauce for me and chicken in roasted garlic sauce for her. The portions were generous, and the food delicious. We’ll be back for sure!

The fish cake appetizer is amazing. Large portions and it is prepared fresh for you. Cocktails tend to be on the sweeter side, but that’s what makes it more authentic Caribbean 🙂.

Boriken is a great family run business that brings a flare of Puerto Rico to the Northwest. The atmosphere is warm and fun and the food is really good. Everything is made from scratch, including the cocktails. We really enjoyed the experience and are looking forward to going back again.

Our first experience at this restaurant...outstanding results. Hostess greeted us at the door and was expecting us due to our open table reservation. She helped us with orientation to the menu and followed her recommendations. The food was great, a service was very attentive. We will be back soon!

Been here a couple times and loved the experience both times. Puerto rican food is fairly new to me so I cannot speak too much on authenticity or have much to compare it to but it all tastes fresh, homemade and is very delicious. The service and atmosphere felt very comforting.

Boriken has delicious and authentic Puerto Rican food. It's the next best thing to being on the island. My husband grew up in Puerto Rico and it's a wonderful trip through memory lane every time we go in. It's quickly become our favorite place to dine and all our friends have loved it!

There was a table reserved for us in this small restaurant. Our party of 5 arrived early and there was actually a "Reserved" sign on one of the larger tables for us. The staff/owners were kind and gave good recommendations. There were many menu items that were special, including a chicken stew that they only offer for a short time, homemade lemonade, and Puerto Rican coffee that they have shipped from a small grower. In addition, they have a to-die-for hot sauce that is homemade and available to buy in a bottle. We had a wonderful visit and want to come again.

We picked this place to try something new for a special day. It’s a casual place, definitely not fancy but comfortable and clean. The service was fantastic and the food was really good, affordable, and we had leftovers! We had fun trying a new place that is unpretentious, has staff that treat you well, and serves delicious food that we’ve never eaten before. We will certainly come back!
