Adrian Tropical information
A huge sign of a smiling boy (Adrian?) announces this popular chain’s kid-friendly credentials. However, from the road the lush jungle landscaping and waterfalls obscure its function – to serve as many hungry families as possible. Waiters scurry throughout the two floors and outdoor dining area doling out Dominican specialties like yucca or plantain mofongo (mashed yucca or plantains with pork rinds; US$5) and standard meat dishes (US$8). An inexpensive buffet (US$6) is another option and the fruit drinks (US$1.50) hit the spot. There are three other outposts in Santo Domingo.
