Dominican cuisine draws on a variety of influences ranging from the Spanish to Africa to indigenous island tribes. Many dishes feature meat or seafood with a grain, such as rice, corn, or wheat. There are also a plethora of fresh vegetables and fruits, while dishes traditionally stray away from dairy products and non-starchy vegetables.
One of the most popular Dominican dishes is a breakfast called “Los Tres Golpes” or “The Three Hits”. This meal consists of mangu (mashed plantain), fried eggs, fried salami, fried cheese, and avocado. Another classic that we serve is “La Bandera” or “The Flag.” This is made up of rice, red beans, and a meat while being served with a side salad.
