Travesias

8 Jul

Travesías is a relatively new restaurant which is focused on local cuisine. I was interested in visiting, not only because it´s visually appealing but also because they play a bit with typical dishes & drinks; they also because most of their ingredients are local, and I’m all about supporting my country. Check out the Facebook Fanpage it´s got great pics.

The food was alright; it had its hits and misses for me although others on the table had nothing but compliments. I think I just made the first mistake by ordering a drink called ¨Beso de Samanà ¨ – Samanà Kiss, which is basically, White Rum with coriander, cream milk and bits of coconut. For me this was just too sweet and much milk but not enough coconut flavors in it… it did look appealing though.

Fritura!! Rincón de la Pierna

27 Feb fritura

It´s been a crazy couple of weeks with lots of work but I will reward you with some local goodies on this post. This will be a quick introduction to Dominican Fritura!!

I know that you´ve probably seen little trucks with hanging meat at some point (usually at night). Well I know it seems a bit barbaric, choking and probably not common.This is what Dominicans call Fritura or Pica longa. Every country has its own version but ours looks a bit like this.
