3. Mangu

Often times at breakfast you will find this food item. It is a very savory puree made of mashed plantains, yautia (taro), or cassava (yucca). Sometimes it is made with pumpkin-like squash also known as Auyama. This variation of puree is called 'mazamorra'. Traditionally this puree is served with fried red onions; also with this can be fried white cheese, eggs or possibly salami.

4. Fruits

Tropical fruits are a normal food item in the Dominican Republic! Fruits such as pineapple, some of the sweetest banana's ever, passion fruit, papaya, mango's (when in season), jagua, and 'zapote' which would be a less known fruit to visiting people to the Dominican Republic.

5. Pastelon de papas (Potatoes and beef casserole)

This is a very popular recipe in the Dominican Republic; it is a much tastier choice than just mashed potatoes alone. Foods used in this dish are mashed potatoes, mozzarella cheese, parsley, ground beef, tomato paste, onions, green peppers, mashed garlic, eggs, and evaporated milk, butter, oil and salt! You can also substitute other meats for the beef or just use cheese. Hot spices are not generally used in Dominican Republic Dishes, however some people use a few drops of chili sauce such as Tabasco or something like that to spice up their food a little bit!
