Reviews of Tipico Dominicano
Tipico is located in a very small, plain, rather cramped space - it isn’t going to win any beauty awards. The food more than made up for it! The first time I tried their food, I sent my non spanish speaking spouse to go pick up an order or mofongo, the ubiquitous fried, mashed plantain dish popular in Puerto Rico and Dominican Republic. It was very good, but the test for me would be a plate of stewed beef and rice, so yesterday, we took an Eastie Now fieldtrip over to Tipico for lunch. For $17 bucks, we each got a take out container loaded with morro, beef, a side salad, and a beverage. The portions were so generous that we both took home substantial leftovers.
How did it taste? Amazing. It was almost as good as Abuela’s (shhhhh, can’t ever say as good as), delicious, filling, and comforting in the best possible way. I am definitely returning whenever I’m homesick for Brooklyn and my Abuela’s cooking. As a matter of fact, I think I’ll get an order of mofongo to go.
