The Dominican Cuisine

The Dominican Cuisine is delicious, lots of different delicious options to taste. I find that the most common foods that the locals eat are rice, plantains, beans and chicken. In this gallery, you will see all the different types of foods I ate while in the Dominican Republic and what you can expect. This is not everything but I took as many pictures as I could. I wish I took more, but this gives you a good idea.

For your own information: you will not see any of America’s popular fast food restaurants like McDonald’s, or KFC, etc unless you are in the capital city if the Dominican Republic – Santo Domingo. Even there you won’t see them everywhere but expect to see them in all the big malls.

Below are the best Dominican dishes:

  • Habichuelas con Dulce (Sweet Cream of Beans)
  • Sancocho (7-Meat Stew)
  • Arroz Blanco (White Rice)
  • Mangú (Plantain Mash)
  • Habichuelas Guisadas (Stewed Bean)
  • Pollo Guisado (Braised Chicken)
  • Ensalada Verde (Green Salad)
  • Tostones (Twice-Fried Plantains)

Drinks and beverages: almost all menus in Sosúa and all over the Dominican Republican you will find the following drinks on their menus, all very popular – MUST TRY:

  1. Presidente (Beer)
  2. Mamajuana
  3. Mojito
  4. Pina Colada
  5. Coco Loco
  6. Banana Mama
  7. Blue Hawaiin
