Sancocho Stew in Downtown Santo Domingo
A delicious mix of the Dominican kitchen's most typical ingredients.
A classic Dominican stew and where best to sample it.
A chunky soup that has its variations throughout Latin America but is considered another one of the Dominican Republic’s national dishes, and is especially popular for holidays and festivals, sancocho is kind of a “kitchen-sink” dish involving many of the country’s most typical ingredients, including plantains, cassava, yams, cilantro, and potato, as well as meats such as pork, beef, goat, and sausage. In Santo Domingo, the place to go for it is El Cantábrico at Avenida Independencia 54 in the Zona Colonial (which by the way also boasts a great wine list).
