    I always felt that a good hot dog place would do well there. W real nathans type franks , sauerkraut, chili, and the papaya juice would be easy to make. Even the hot dogs down there, yuk. Does a place like Pricesmart carry good hot dogs?

    I've seen Nathans dogs. You gonna open a cart?

    I like that idea, cause there's less for flies to land on. If the buns are wrapped up and the dogs in water, nothing for those filthty things to land on.

    And have some Grey Poupon.

    "Bug alert: lack of hygiene shutters restaurant, colmados"

    Santo Domingo.- The National Consumer Protection Institute (Pro Consumidor) on Thurs. afternoon shuttered the restaurant “Delicias Campestre” in the capital’s Chinatown, and other businesses such as colmados for the presence of bugs and for mishandling products offered to customers.
    In a statement, the agency said inspectors found pests that affected the foods sold to the public, and the personnel prepared such food, “in an inappropriate manner.”
    Pro Consumidor said the businesses were shuttered “for violating basic standards of hygiene and the inadequate conservation of food, which implies an imminent risk to the health of consumers.”
    On its website, the agency added that the restaurant will not reopen “until the conditions of hygiene and quality of its facilities and the products that are commercialized are corrected, as a guarantee that they do not affect the lives of consumers and users.”

    There is a pica pollo on Calle El Conde in the Colonial Zone that is long overdue from a visit from any existing consumer protection entity. Roaches, both large and small, travel freely throughout the place. I've seen employees stomp the slow and infirm ones with their feet. There's evidence of the presence of rodents, if one looks closely. Since a large portion of the roof on the second floor has collapsed, water from the frequent rains flood the floors of the restaurant. There's a mad scramble to unsuccessfully move the already-cooked-food around, to keep it from flooding also. If the rain persists, and the dozen or so buckets and odd containers fail to contain the 15-20 leaks, the restaurant sometimes closes for the day. I'll leave the food handling in the kitchen, along with what happens with the food that's not sold that day, for another day. Waste not!

    Wow, that’s one of the restaurants recommended in the Chinese food thread a week or so ago.

    Default You be the judge.

    Any long time DR1'r know they have to be the judge of food safety. The government is choosy at best towards vendors regarding its enforcement of food sanitation regulations. Don't expect a warm and fuzzy feeling that the government is looking out for your welfare. It's attempts doing so are weak.

    Visiting tourists need to do their homework about where they visit and this includes quality of food services being promoted at tourist locations. Websites such as TripAdvisor, (especially after being corrected for censorship ) are an assistance. Consults to DR1 are good. If staying at a resort do not be shy to notify administrators, (ask for names), if food quality and food environment is questionable.

    If out on your own, no matter where you go, let your eyes, nose, and intelligence be the guide to food safety and a good bite.


    Regards,

    PJT
