Empanadas de Yuca, Street Food!

The crackling of the hot oil. The undeniable taste of the yuca in my mouth. You really just had to be there.

I haven’t eaten out on the street on this trip the way I ate in Mexico City. You definitely have to be more careful in Santo Domingo. But when you find that clean looking vendor that has somewhat of a crowd, go for it!
