Pat´e Palo

3 May

This review should’ve been one of the first I had ever written, because Pat´e Palo is one of my favorite restaurants and I´m just so very sorry I kept you in the dark for so long. This place has a great setting since it´s located at the Spanish Plaza in the Colonial City.

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 🙂

Pura Tasca

26 Aug

Spanish food lovers get ready, Pura Tasca has a variety of delicious dishes for you. I adored this place, and brought me back to the time I lived in Barcelona(sniff sniff). The location is one of my favorites in Santo Domingo, at The Colonial City in Plaza España with a view to the Columbus Alcazar.

This time instead of ordering and entrée and appetizer, I went straight to the good stuff ,Tapas!
The complimentary toast with aioli and tomato sauce was very tasty and great way to start dinner  with. I loved the aioli, garlic for me just makes everything better and the tomato sauce was mild but great with the toast, as the traditional pa amb tomàquet (tomato and bread) Tapa served in Spain.
