    Default Thai Food...

    Anyone here experimented with making Thai food here in this country? Wondering if there are any stores that specialize in Asian food products.

    yes, i've been running a japanese & thai food restaurant in cabarete (procab) for the past year. most items you can get here, although the oriental food shops are all in S.D.

    Santo Domingo has several Chinese supermarkets, in 'Chinatown' (Av Duarte/Mexico area) and on Av. Romulo Betancourt. Some Thai ingredients in stock.

    The larger supermarkets like Carrefour, Nacional and Bravo have exotic foods sections which often include Thai stuff.

    There are some specialist delis like L'Epicier de l'orient and Omaha Gourmet, both in Plaza Paseo de la Churchill on Av. Churchill / Pastoriza, with some Thai ingredients.

    I've never found any decent asian food other than Chinese in Santo Domingo. There was an "ok" Japanese place on Abraham Lincoln about a block south of Verizon's Dominican HQ I think it was just called "Teriyaki".

    Never seen a Thai place, a bit too spicy for Dominican tastes I guess.

    Hey, it's my pleasure and no trouble at all. Nice to be appreciated though.

    There are some 'faux Thai' places, or generic Asian that include some Thai dishes in the Naco and Piantini area. Can't think of the names now. Pib has checked some of them out and was not highly impressed, IIRC.

    You guys are making me start to miss Manhattan, and those long 2 hour lunches in Chinatown. We would do Thai food at least once a week.

    Thumbs up Korean is Asian, isn't it?

    There are a number of authentic Korean restaurants in the area surrounding their little barrio in Bella Vista (Santo Domingo). For example, on calle 12 de Julio there is a place called Mennem that has Kimchi, barbecued short ribs and many other well known Korean specialities. Restaurant Bethel, nearby on Romulo Betancourt just west of the Burger King is more homestyle and has fewer seafood items. I need to emphasize that this is authentic Korean food. It is at least 100 times more spicy than what most Domincans describe as "muy picante." There are items that are not spicy and Bethel will tone it down on request because the owner told me they are trying to cater to a more mixed crowd. There is also a Korean supermarket on 12 de Julio. Enjoy.
