Puerto Plata is always an incredible experience of exquisite flavors, aromas and mouthwateringly good regional specialties made with the freshest local ingredients. Plantains, coconuts, cassava, oranges, guavas and red beans provide a unique tropical taste to just about any dish cooked here! Almost every Dominican course features beef, chicken and, since Puerto Plata has a wonderful beach, seafood too. One of the local favorites is "Pica Pollo", a delicious fried chicken usually accompanied by fried banana slices.There's an abundance of dishes on offer in Puerto Plata, ranging from traditional local cooking, grilled steaks, and vegetarian food to Japanese gourmet cuisine, German favorites and Arabic specialties. The choice is all yours, and if you have time it's worth trying a little bit of everything.
