    Default Dominican Regions and Food

    After reading in today's dr1 news about the Bani Mango Festival, I wanted to start a thread about Dominican towns/regions and the food they are known for, as lots of Dominican towns have a special food, produce or treat every visitor should experience. I think this will be helpful for future visitors who venture around the country.

    I know of a few but I'll start with Bani:

    Bani: Mangos & Dulce de Leche (Las Tres Rosas Brand)

    Default According To Dominicans,the BEST,....

    Mangos,as you said,are from Bani.
    "Chivo Guisado" From Monti Cristi,because the goats come pre-seasoned. They eat wild oregano at pasture!
    Platanos are best from Baharona.
    Yuca is best from Moca.
    Best beans from San Juan de la Maguana.
    Most "Important of all, The most beautiful girls come from Santiago de los Caballeros!
    Best "Chicharones de Cerdo" from Villa Mella.

    Chenchén (mais molou in Haiti) in the southwest
    Domplines, yaniqueques, kipes from San Pedro de Macorís
    Coconut-based dishes from Samaná - pescado con coco, coconut bread.

    Most of these recipes can be found on Aunt Clara’s Kitchen: Dominican cooking, recipes, dishes, food and culinary culture
