    Hi, all the food items look great, but where are they to be found if one is not familiar with the area?

  • dr1guide says:

    Most of these food items can be found at any Dominican Restaurant. You might want to try Adrian Tropical on the Malecón or El Conuco in Gazcue. You can find their addresses and contact info in the dr1guide directory
