Puerto Rican cuisine is known for its humble character, a blend of flavors from the European Spanish, Native Americans and imported Africans who settled this American commonwealth. In Matin county, “la comida criolla” — the food of Puerto Rico — is synonymous with the Sol Food restaurants and their co-owner and chef, Sol Hernandez. A San Rafael institution for 10 years, Sol Food recently opened an outpost in downtown Petaluma.

Easy Rider’s packed dining room belies its refined menu, which provides Petaluma diners with Southern cuisine, but stepped up a notch or two. With dishes such as fried chicken, hushpuppies, and collard greens, everything seemed to be slightly different, and most definitely elevated. The attention to detail does come at a cost. Sourcing quality ingredients means the prices at Easy Rider are not what you would find at a diner in the Bayou, but are well worth the experience!
