    Default If you like this food...come here!!

    I thought eating out in Cabarete was getting a little pricey, then I saw this menu from a Dominican restaurant in NYC. I feel better now.

    It's A Dominican Thing

    Great menu, and the next time I visit NEW YORK, NEW YORK, I will head to China Town for the Ducks in the window.

    Roast Duck Noodle Soup is a must.....

    Bring it on !

    my eye was drawn to salcocho- is this a soup version of sancocho or a spelling mistake and are tomatos borrachos drunk tomatos or does it mean something else (I like to read menus to try to learn)

    Z-man,
    Thanks for the link. It's interesting to see how just about anything can become gentrified.

    As an aside, and not intended to be a reflection on you in any way, I would sooner go to Santiago and join ABC in a conga line than go to NYC and spend a fortune for faux Dominican food. (I hope you caught my clever, coy and cute alliteration.)

    The real question is, is the food any good? Sure it's pricey, but if you live in NYC and are jonesing for some arroz moro, six bucks is a lot cheaper than a plane ticket to Santiago.

    Good for you David. I agree, and I missed your meaning at first.

    The right word for what dominicans call sancocho is salcocho.

    Sancochar means to blanch.

    Salcochar means to cook in water with salt.
