Want a Villa Verde appetizer that’s sure to make your taste buds happy? Just say cheese!
Order some Queso Frito — fried cheese — with guava sauce.
Queso Frito is made with a white, salty cheese that has a high melting point. The cheese is cut into cubes and pan fried to give it a crispy exterior and a perfectly melted interior.
Dip the warm squares of cheese into the fruity guava dipping sauce for a sweet and savory tropical treat.
Fried cheese is so popular in the Dominican Republic that it’s eaten any time of day — even in the morning, where it’s part of the traditional Los Tres Golpes breakfast with mangu (mashed plantains), eggs and Dominican salami.
For a true taste of the Dominican Republic, order Villa Verde’s Queso Frito as an appetizer. It’s $7.99.
