The Dominican Republic – Cuisine

Due to The Dominican Republic’s rich history, Dominican cuisine has African, Spanish, Middle Eastern, and Taino influences. Fresh fruits, beef, pork, and flavorful spices are all staples of Dominican cuisine. Perhaps the most popular dish in The Dominican Republic is La Bandera, which is a dish made up of rice, red beans, and meat. La Bandera translates to “The Flag”, and represented the tri-colored flag of The Dominican Republic.
