The chefs at Puerto Plata pull influence from Dominican, Cuban, and Puerto Rican cuisines to roast pork, stew chicken, and grill steaks for dishes that populate a menu of authentic Latin food. Taste buds’ vacations begin with appetizers such as chicken empanadas and tostones, fried green plantains. Tender chicken in the arroz con pollo hikes up a mountain of yellow rice strewn with green-pea boulders, and garlic shrimp fit neatly into mouths like oversize pools fit neatly in the backyard of a mansion. Sips of Sutter Home wines wash down bites before dining foursomes sink sweet teeth into flan de queso, a sweet-cheese custard. Diners feast beneath the straw-covered umbrellas on the patio or bathe in the warm hues of Puerto Plata’s dining room while gazing at the beach of an island-themed wall mural.
Puerto Plata Restaurant
In the midst of an asphalt desert lies an oasis surrounded by palm trees. Just above them, Puerto Plata Restaurant's terra-cotta-colored roof peeks out, beckoning the hungry to sate themselves with the restaurant's homemade Dominican fare. Traditional dishes, such as arroz con gandules, support plates of pollo guisado, a hearty chicken stew, and chillo frito, fried red snapper.
