Food In Dominican Republic

I am leaving for a quick trip to the Dominican Republic tomorrow morning and was wondering what kinds of food they are known for. What dishes or foods should I make sure to try while I am there? I have been told to bring back rum and coffee, but I need to know what to eat while on vacation

Hey GB! I'm not sure about food but if you find Wray & Nephew Overproof Rum, I'd recommend it! I got a bottle of that in Jamaica and it's some pretty good stuff!

I just googled Dominican Republic food since you have me curious too, and found some interesting information.

This site gives you a very basic overview of what the traditional tastes and flavors are in Dominican food (about half way down the page). http://www.tqnyc.org/NYC030493/DOMINICAN_REPUBLIC.html

And this site is fantastic: http://www.theworldwidegourmet.com/c...ominican-r.htm

I'll be anxious to hear about what you eat and see some pictures--it sounds like a beautiful place! Have a great trip, GB!

Thanks PAB! Those links were very helpful Sounds like goat, rice, and beans are some of their staple foods. I can't wait to try all sorts of things and report back you you all

While I have never been there myself, I have lot's of friends and family members that have and they all talk about this pork they had. It is placed in a whole in the sand, with hot coal in it, covered with foil and then buried with more sand, for as long as hole day. Apparently, it gets a smoky flavour and it is delicious. They have all sorts of typical food, served at the resorts, restaurants, hotels, you know, not hard to miss. Plus you'll probably be so busy, going out (great party time and clubs), you won't feel all that much like "food hunting".
Have a great time! I want to go there myself! (green in envy)
