Cafeteria menu near our hostel in Santo Domingo- you can get the plate of the day for a few dollars ($2 or 3 if I remember right). On Wednesday the plate of the day was rice, beans, steamed veggies, and chicken.

Chokis. Like crunchy Chips Ahoy cookies. I went to the Colmado (corner market) and asked him what the best cookies they had were. He showed me several varieties of Chokis and I bought them all.

“Coco loco” at the beach- coconut water with rum. Sometimes they add ice, lime juice, or coconut milk. If you ask, after you drink it all, they will chop open the coconut so you can scrape out all the flesh to eat. Costs about $2-4, depending on the beach.

Mofongo combi- Mashed plantains and pork rinds with grilled beef on the side. I also got cheese empanadas which came with a parsley lime sauce. From Adrian Tropical. The whole meal was around $10 including juice, a little bit of soup, cake, and what you see here.

Pan de coco- coconut bread. Most likely contains wheat flour, but tasty.
