Dominican food is a combination of flavors from many different continents and countries. There’s a heavy Spanish and African influence in the spices and flavors of this cuisine, and the staple foods include pasta, salted codfish, and smoked herring.
What makes Dominican fare great is it’s simple, easy to prepare, low in fat, and great for those who are on the go. Even the most inexperienced cooks can successfully turn out flavorful, colorful Dominican meals. Seasoning is simple, as the Dominican rule of thumb says that dishes should be prepared and flavored to taste.
Breakfasts are typically light and include mangu, boiled cassava, and fried Dominican cheese. Sometimes, dinner dishes are served for breakfast as well. Cocoa or latte make for a fine finish to this hearty morning meal. Jimmy’s Grand Cafe serves a Dominican breakfast that includes mangu, salami, cheese, and eggs.
Lunch is the most important meal of the day for Dominicans. During lunch, the family gathers together to share a meal of meat, red beans, white rice, and a light side dish. For lunch or dinner, Jimmy’s Grand Cafe offers Dominican sliders made with a beef and pork patty and served with coleslaw.
