    Nope doesn't happen in our two households of Dominicans. Bananas are eaten separately as a snack.

    I picked up this habit from my Dad, whenever I eat rice, beans and meat I peel a banana and set to the side of my food. I like a little sweetness added. I also am a hot sauce/spicy food freak which the sweetness makes it even better. In the DR though I cannot buy bananas and have them stay for at least a day. Wife and everyone that comes by eats 1 or 2 if I have them sitting out. Lol

    what's your thought on this?
    It's called a balanced diet.

    Well, chefs are a wierd lot. Some focus on good eats where as others think it's all about micro portions and squiggly marks on the plate. Maybe he was looking for the bright yellow to contrast something else on the plate. Or, maybe phallic objects and the DR just go together and may stimulate your subconscious to leave a bigger tip.

    Chef??

    Bandera is found across every Dominican household dinner table and so the Bananas with it, no Chef involved.
