Who is Don Goyito
Don Goyito or “El Buñuelero” as he was best known was one of our favorite people. He was born in San Sebastian but Fajardo “made” him one of his own. Married to Doña Inocencia Ortíz they became the parents of twelve siblings. The only income to support his family came from the sales of his famous “buñuelos.” He never revealed his recipe made up of 13 ingredients. The only thing he admitted was that one of the ingredients was bananas. You could see him pushing his cart around town wearing his uniform with pride and respecting his job.
Today his daughter, Jael Román, who bears an uncanny resemblance with her father, is keeping up with the tradition. Wearing a similar uniform and her father’s cap, she pushes his cart and sells the “buñuelos.” This delicacy sought by people from around the Island is also known to visitors who have heard and tasted them. Some even bring samples to their hometowns. So, before your stay at Passion Fruit ends we invite you to savor Don Goyito’s “ricos buñuelos.”
