What is worth trying in Dominicana?
The combination of European and African cuisines may seem unnecessarily exotic and taste strange to the tourist. But this is absolutely not the case. A distinctive feature of local dishes was the combination of bananas, legumes with meat and fish. The most popular among locals is sofrito – a snack that consists of tomato paste, green onions, finely chopped garlic, tomatoes, coriander and vinegar.
So what is here to try first?
Assopao – A fragrant rice soup with shrimps or chicken. This is something between a soup, a stew and a paella. Seafood lovers will definitely appreciate this dish.
La Bandera – chicken stew with a thick sauce, which is also added bananas. This is one of the most popular dishes of Creole cuisine, whose name translates as “Flag”.
Tostones – probably everyone heard about fried bananas? In the Dominican Republic is a very popular snack. Here you can taste it at almost every corner.

Do not pass by national drinks:
Mamahuana is a strong forty-degree drink based on rum. In the bottle you will see a lot of herbs and roots, and even if the bottle is empty, Dominicans pour it over with alcohol again. The liquid is infused, absorbing the aromatic substances. This drink is considered a good aphrodisiac – natural Viagra.
Be sure to try the sweet and sweet Dominican coffee. Here this drink is also a matter of national pride. After all, it is in this country that one of the best grains is produced for a drink. Coffee is served in a small cup – because it is very strong.
And finally, rum. About fifteen types of this alcoholic beverage are produced here, so during the holidays it is not a fact that you will be able to taste all the varieties.
