When the blazing hot Dominican sun is beating down, there is nothing better than stumbling upon the Frio Frio cart making its way through town. A Frio Frio is essentially a snow cone prepared with homemade juices and exotic flavors. For 20 pesos (50 cents) you can get youself the perfect little tropical refreshment to chill off. Added bonus, you can mix as many flavors as you want!
"Solo Dios Salva" Only God Saves. Very common to see religious phrases like this painted onto the front of a business, graffitied onto walls, or as bumperstickers on taxis and conchos.
Our friend here is trying to make a sale and explaining to us the different selections he has to offer: Lemon, Lechoza (papaya), Raspberry, Strawberry. Coconut, Jagua (A weird melon fruit), Strawberry Coconut mixed, Chinola, etc.
I opted for the Frambuesa (raspberry), Lindsay and Malin went for a Strawberry-Lemon combo.
"To die dreaming." That´s the literal translation of this Dominican favorite. And with a name like that, its pretty much impossible not to give it a try. The drink itself consists of whole milk mixed with orange juice. It has to be served icy cold to keep the acidity of the orange juice from curdling the milk. Intriguing, delicious, and the perfect re for a hot Dominican afternoon. Malín here, our amiga sueca (swedish friend), loved it so much she almost ordered another.
