  9. Yes, I went to the Dominican Republic once (Punta Cana). They had good food. I don't remember all of it, but I do remember very sweet desserts, and lots of meat and fish. If you search food and drink in the dominican republic, a lot comes up as well. I'm going to keep reading and see what I can find.

  11. Oh Jen you are a lifesaver i've been trying to work on this since I've gotten out of school. I really appreciate this.
    So farr ihave this informationz-->
    But i suppose i need more because she wants 3 website resources...
    But even then istill have to write the essay which i need help on too.
    Its alot of helping out so i understand if you cant. But anyway;

    In the DR, breakfast typically calls for a serving of "Mangu," a mix of plantains, cheese and bacon (which can be found at most hotel and resort restaurants). Mangu has been named the "mashed potatoes" of the Dominican Republic. Locals are also known to prepare the dish for evening meals.

    A foundation of the native diet, "La Bandera Dominicana," or the Dominican flag meal, is eaten by nearly everyone at lunch time. The most important meal of the day, La Bandera consists of rice, beans, meat, vegetables and fried plantains to ensure energy throughout the afternoon and evening.

    Another popular dish is "Sancocho," a Spanish-style stew usually served with rice. Ingredients include various roots, green plantains, avocado and typically chicken or beef, although it sometimes includes a combination of seven meats (Sancocho prieto). Goat meat, a staple in many Dominican homes, may also be used in this recipe.

    "Locrio," or Dominican rice, varies with its preparer. An adaptation of the Spanish paella, locrio is made with achiote (a colored dye produced from the seeds of the achiote plant), since saffron spice is unavailable.

    Other favorite Dominican dishes include:

    "chicharrones de pollo" (diced chunks of deep fried chicken)
    "yucca cassava" (type of bread)
    "monfogo" (plantain based dish)
    "ropo vieja" (seasoned and fried shredded beef served with rice and a side salad)
    "pastelitos" (meat-or -cheese filled pastry turnovers).

    Cakes, puddings, caramel-dipped fruits and creams are common for desserts.
    "bizcochos" (cakes with white cream topping)
    "dulce de leche" (milk cream flavored with coconut or fruit)
    "arroz con leche" (rice pudding)
