Tropical taste

Hello my beautiful and happy couples. As you know, there is nothing more beautiful than having new experiences and new emotions, bringing a new taste to your life! The exotic fruits, vegetables, Dominican nuts will help you in this. If we talk about the most delicious emotions. In Dominican Republic you can taste interesting things and choose your favorites.

Mango

The first thing you should try is definitely mangoes! Here are many kinds of it. So, only this exotic fruit you can taste countless times. The most delicious and sweet kind of mango is “Banilejo”. That’s the one you should try first! The mango season is from April to October.

Pineapple

Another star of local fruits is pineapple. That’s why it’s very common in Dominican Republic a cocktail named “Pina Colada”, which sometimes can be served directly in a pineapple.

Coconut

Coconuts are just an extraordinary treasure for your health! Here they grow at 10 per square meter. And of course, any dominican coquero (a guy who deals with coconuts) will organize a glass of healthy water very quickly. He will also help you open the coconut to get the coconut mass from the inside. Yummy!

Avocado

Avocado. One of the best friends for girls because it contains a huge amount of vitamin E, which helps us to stay fresh and healthy. It also has a large amount of minerals, vitamins and mono- and polyunsaturated fats.  It tastes great when you complete it with a little bit of lemon juice.

Passion fruit

Passion fruit, or chinola, as it is called here. It’s enough for you to eat just 2 of those to fulfill your body with vitamin C. But don’t forget to add 1 teaspoon of honey or sugar,  as it’s a little too sour. 

A lot of other different fruits and vegetables that will surprise you in taste and has a great value for your body. We could speak endlessly!

Papaya (lechosa). Pleasant and sweet taste. A large number of cocktails are made from it and you can eat it just like that. Fruta de dragon (pitahaya) with a bright inner world, which the photographers also love for its colorfulness. And finally, and of course, bananas! About them, we will write a whole separate post about their types and tastes and methods of cooking. Ask any dominican what’s  “Tostones”. And you will be surprised when they bring you a plate with thin fried bananas with ketchup on side, it’s like fried potatoes chips here!

And in conclusion, I  recommend you to order our plate from exotic fruits for your wedding in paradise. Because that way you’ll be sure to add new senses  to your big day that you will remember for your whole life!
