    No Rubio, he is refering to have a guineo with their moro or locrio.

    Sometimes I cook pisang goreng, a variation on the platanos maduros fritos. My family love it.

    What an incredibly first-world snob statement to make. World-renowned chefs like the late Anthony Bourdain and Andrew Zimmern have enjoyed Dominican cuisine from street food to first class restaurants and nothing happened to them. And FYI, most locals eat home-cooked meals with fresh ingredients that are often far superior than all those type of eateries you have mentioned. A great meal doesn't have to cost $500+ pesos.

    I eat daily meals at any one of various local restaurants where a plate of food can run between 100 and 150 pesos, so yeah, kind of snobby.

    Having said that, I don't eat at any "side of the road food stand with meat hanging on a rack' places.

    You never stop for chiccharones on Duarte Hwy or on the highway from SD to SC?

    I swear to God that they call our names. We usually stop and I usually end up spending extra time near the bathroom. Leo’s ironclad stomach never rebels.

    I think your statement about staying close to the bathrooms backs up JD's reason!!

    Have you guys tried La Esquina del Chicharrón? They have a few locations in the capital, I went to the one in Alma Rosa....it’s deliciously amazing, I guess you can consider them a little bit more upscale since they are located in the nicer residential areas, but their chicharron is bar none and their locations are smalland simple so it doesnt feel pretentious; they also make pasteles en hoja and mofongo. Go on their Instagram account and your mouth will water lol

    What about the lechonera right outside your business gates? We always say we’re going to stop, but haven’t so far.
