La Briciola

30 Sep

As a family tradition we go out to dinner to celebrate birthdays, it has become somewhat of a challenge at times. This year the choice was easy. There would be two celebrations in one, so a place twice as good was chosen: La Briciola 

La Briciola has won the award Best of DR for a couple of years in a row, including 2013. I have to say it; yes, it is expensive so I would only consider it in very special occasion(very being the keyword here).It´s Located at the Colonial City of Santo Domingo. The infrastructure itself makes a beautiful decoration  along with some painting and sculptures from Botero ( a famous colombian artist known for his overweight colorful characters) and twinkle lights.

From the get go everyone was very attentive and polite. The night started of with a bottle of red wine,  Casillero Del Diablo  as a recommendation from the waiter. I´m more of  white wine or sparkling kind of girl, but I have to admit I really liked this one!

Dinner would NOT have been the same without this bottle 🙂

Tapati

24 Sep

After my first experience at Tapiti. I was avid about not going back. I had gone a weeknight after 8pm. Which seemed like it was club time and the waiters had no interest in serving ….. to make the story short, I`m actually glad I came back after a very insisting brother .

I have to say that the decoration could use a little more loving, but what really matters is the food (let´s face it hehehe) and considering it turns into a club at night, decoration is not their main concern.

The service was very hasty which I appreciated because I was famished!. To star, I ordered a Sangria, which turned out to be too strong (maybe it’s the same bartender as night shift).

you will definetly feel the buzz if you finish it

FYI – It´s tapas so don´t expect the huge dishes that will make you roll out of the restaurant once you’re done. This is great for sharing, but don´t worry you WILL get full by the time you are done, just order a couple of dishes.

Drumroll please!!!!….

Conos Manía!

Conos Mania, What a great concept! food in a cone…in our case, the cone is made of green fried plantains or seaweed. I´ve seen these concept in another country like U.S.A but have only tried it here. For me, it was a surprise the first time I tasted it because I underestimated it.
