The always-changing variety of sushi rolls available at El Fogon are made from fresh fish, caught daily by local fisherman, including the restaurant’s own part-owner and manager! El Fogon de la Curva in Rincon PR also offers fresh whole lobster, Lionfish, and a fish market for your own grilling enjoyment. Enjoy creative rolls such as smoked parrotfish, dorado, kingfish or lobster.
