Fellowship With Friends Over Food: The Restaurant Guide

So, I titled this blog #LaGorditaChronicles with the intention of sharing recipes and reviews of restaurants, but it kind of morphed and now includes natural hair, healthy living and makeup. 

Nonetheless, I’m still going to talk about food because well…I LOVE FOOD! There is something about eating good food and being in the company of good friends. 


1. Restuarant:  Sabor Dominicano 

Food Type: Dominican/Caribbean

Location: 4186 Buford Hwy NE Atlanta, GA 30345

Price: $


Review: Great customer service. Dominican style chicken was cooked perfectly!The rice and beans and traditional vinegar tossed salad were good. the habichuelas con dulce (sweet beans/traditional Dominican dessert) was awesome, and even better after it sat in the fridge. The jugo de chinola (passion fruit juice) and jugo de guanabana (soursop juice) were also very good and fresh. Recommended.



2. Restuarant: Mofongo Mi Terraza

Food Type: Dominican/Caribbean

Location: Moca, Dominican Republic

Price: $$


Review: The line seems to always be out of the door and spilling onto the street. Wait time on a Sunday afternoon was about 1 1.5 hour, but so worth it. The Mofongo (Afro-Caribbean dish which includes mashed plantains and bacon and/or chicken among other things). Large servings. One plate fed 3 people. Very relaxed and family-oriented environment. Recommended.


3. Restuarant: Barra Payán

Food Type: Sandwich Shop

Location: Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic

Price: $


Review: Quick service. Attentive server. Reasonable prices. Amazing sandwiches and very fresh, straight from the fruit juice. Good location. Great place to stop and eat late at night! Recommended.


4. Restuarant: Abyssinia Ethiopian Restaurant

Food Type: Ethiopian

Location: 2600 Poplar Ave #115, Memphis, TN 38112

Price: $$


Review: Didn’t get acknowledged when I was there..soccer was on:/ Food on the bar didn’t look fresh. Variety of vegetables. Yebeg Wat (lamb braised very slowly in our special turmeric sauce with a touch of ginger, garlic and green pepper) with traditional Ethiopian bread, cabbage and greens were AMAZING!!!! Recommended.


Hasta Pronto!
