Dear Uncle Phaedrus,

In  late 1972 or early 1973, I accompanied my parents to a convention in San Juan, 
Puerto Rico.  We stayed at a hotel/ resort called "Pineapple Beach".  There was a 
restaurant on site which served exceptionally delicious sautéed onion filled rolls.

I can find no information on the rolls, restaurant, or hotel.  I have not been able 
to find a recipe or duplicate the rolls, despite my best efforts.  I have searched 
your site (and many others), to no avail.  Do you have a recipe or a lead for my 

Thank you for your time and effort.  


Hi Wendy,

Sorry, I was unable to find anything on the web or in our cookbook library about this place or the rolls. There is a beach named "Pineapple Beach", but I was unable to find any mention of a restaurant/resort with that name in San Juan, then or now. There is currently a resort named "Pineapple Beach Club", but it appears to be on Antigua and I could not find anything about its restaurant.

You could try these. They might be similar: Caramelized Onion Dinner Rolls

I'll post this for reader input.
