One cannot speak of the Dominican Republic without mentioning the Taino, African and Spanish influence that is savored in every Dominican dish. All these roots are seasoned with the mixture of the local and its evolution over time. Among its tastiest dishes are the sancocho, the mofongo and the Dominican flag. In addition to the great variety of gastronomic specialties, rum, coffee or cocoa are three typical products of the Dominican Republic that every tourist should buy before leaving the country.
