I spent a relaxing New Year's in the Dominican Republic this year. I didn't have the chance to eat any Dominican food other than what was offered at the resort I stayed at so I'm not sure I can really opine on authentic Dominican food. In fact, I don't even know what is considered authentic or what the staple dishes are. I did, however, taste a ridiculous buffet every night at the resort. I'm pretty sure I was only person running around the dining hall with my camera....but if I didn't, I wouldn't have been able to share my awesome pictures!
That's pure happiness/excitement on my face. I had not one, but two lobsters! :)
