    Default American Breakfast in Santiago?????

    My last gasp effort - I have moved here from the states (Atlanta,GA) about two months now and well quite frankly, this food thing is beginning to drive me nuts. I am sick to death of rice and chicken, rice and chuleta! Rice and rice, yucca and fried egg!!! just the other day I tried to explain to a friend what collard greens are! my most desperate effort is to find an American style restaurant that serves bacon, sausage, pancakes ( with blueberries please, pretty please??!!), western omelets, decent REGULAR BLACK coffee ( and do I dare dream??) grits with cheese, can anyone suggest such a place? I have scoured the internet for days on American breakfast in DR, closest I came was the Denny's in SD and nothing else. DR1 is my last opp. I did not realize that the food choices here would be so limited, I am also ashamed to admit - but lately I have been thinking of giving this up and going back home as visions of Denny's and IHOP, spareribs and mac n cheez and chicken fried in FLOUR dance through my head. I am hungry!!!!! HELP!!!!!

    Funny you posted this, DR1 has an Off Topic Forum [you need 500 posts to see it], and we're discussing this exact same thing there in a food thread. Maybe some of the posters from Santiago can help you.

    If you want anything even close to what you desire..............
    You will have to cook it yourself...........

    EXACTLY!!!!

    would you want some Dominican cook making your fried eggs in a half gallon of oil, superheated to molten lava temperatures? have you ever seen a Dominican pot with a handle? know why? they turn the stove up so high that the flames engulf the utensil, and burn off the handles.

    cook the stuff yourself. you can get all of that here, except, perhaps, the grits.
