Customs has siezed my spices and I was really looking forward to some good chinese dishes.
there is a sorta decent chinatown in Santo Domingo. I would guess that would be your best bet.
Now this gets me concerned...cuz i wanted to bring some of my own spices on my next trip as we plan to be cooking at home and i know i wont be able to find many of my thai and indian spices there.
I was told if they were dry spices that it shouldnt be a problem.
I've brought spices in, in person, no problem & likewise, friends have brought them for me, again no problem. Mike's was a mailed package, currently stuck in Customs, according to his other thread.
Mike if you're passing through Puerto Plata go to the Chinese Restaurant near the new Court on Luis Ginebra & ask Chino where he gets his.
