Dominican Food, si! Tue, 03/28/06 10:57 PM (permalink)
Last weekend I went with my daughter up to Washington Heights in NYC. It is a very Latin area, especially people from Dominican Republic. My daughter was a bit hungry so we stopped in a little local coffee shop. First I ordered myself a nice large cup of "Spanish coffee" (espresso + milk). Then she ordered a "small" dish of rice and beans. (The platter was HUGE, enough for a meal, plus we took it home and she had 2 other meals from it!). The waitress said, struggling with English: "That's all you want? Rice and beans? Don't you want chicken or something with it?" My daughter finally said OK, so she added about 6 or 7 medium pieces of chicken to the platter. Then she added about 10 slices of broiled/fried plantains. I mean the platter was HUGE!
And then, the bill (rice, bean, chicken, plantains, and, my coffee)
(get this - in NYC -) $5. (!!!!!)
I think we will do up there again!

    You can find these generous portions at great prices in Dominican restaurants in many neighborhoods in the Bronx and Brooklyn, which also have large Dominican communities.
