A great experience
If you look up the meaning of the Spanish word "conuco", you'll find that it refers to a piece of land cultivated by a poor man, or by the Tainos, the early residents of the Dominican Republic. Well, the restaurant El Conuco is a little piece of that kind of land in the heart of the bustling city of Santo Domingo. There are huge clusters of banana at the entrance, and the unusual decor is sure to raise a smile. Within you can find both tourists eager to try the very essence of the Dominican Republic, and locals who want to redisover their roots. The cuisine is the Conuco Creole style, the traditional food of the Dominican people.
