Dominican Republic: About La Bandera

Traditional Dominican Republic food is very tasty and includes a diverse selection.

One of our best known meals, lovingly named “la bandera” (the flag) consists of white rice, beans, meat, vegetables and fritos verdes (green plantains or tostones).

The Dominican Sancocho is a cooking imitative of the Spanish cocido (stew), and each region of the country has its special way of preparing it.
