It´s almost common law, that in every city or town there must be THE place to get the best sandwiches; Barra Payan is that place in Santo Domingo. This humble little restaurant has been in the market for over 50 years 😮 Needless to say these sandwiches are awesome to survive 50 years.

Sonoma Bistro

8 Oct

Sonoma, a name I´ve heard repeatedly throughout these past weeks, so when I knew I would stop by I was a little exited.

The place is in Piantini (this is a clue on the price range) close Ave.Churchill. The decoration i s very classy and very relaxing for some reason, or maybe I was just tiered :p . For me this place is more like to have a business meeting or if you want a quiet dinner.

I think the food is a little overrated , although I had one favorite that got the golden star.

Pulpo en Salsa de Olivo: This is the real star of the night. Wow! this as the only dish I thought was just out of this planet :O .  Octopus in olive sauce, first of all I had never eaten octopus cooked so soft and full of flavor. The olive sauce was subtle yet it took over you mouth (in a god way), it was just perfect. When you give your first bite I know you´ll think of me and will love me for a second

I have to come back and try this again

Fantasía de Berengena: The Eggplant Fantasy as they call it was a light, simple but very tasty dish. The eggplant was cooked three different ways: a la parmigiana, in a roll filled with goat cheese and as a bruschetta. You will not get full with this , but it´s great to share.

Penne Festival: I was not amazed with this at all! The sauce was very artificial and salty, like something out of an instant package. I think they could´ve done better for RD$400 ( 9 or 10 US$). This Penne Festival was supposed to have mushrooms, chicken and parmegiano….honestly there are other dishes you could try, this is something you can make at home.
