Review of Shish Kabab

Shish Kabab
Ranked #2 of 59 Restaurants in La Romana
Certificate of Excellence
Description: Though specialising in Middle Eastern cuisine, Yolanda and Juan's menu have a range of local (Dominican) dishes. In fact if you speak to them beforehand, they will endeavour to cater for special requests. Their hospitality is excellent. Prices are reasonable. Seating is available indoors with air-con, and also a renovated outside terrace to watch the world go by. The recipes have been passed from generations and after 46 years, the restaurant continues to develop its menu and deliver an excellent mouth watering experience. Do not forget to try the dishes for which they are most known for, the Kipe and Catibias. The Kipe is a traditional arabic dish made out of bulgur wheat filled with meat and fried to perfection and the Catibia is their version of an empanada made out of yuca instead of flour and filled with a variety of options like meat, chicken, cheese, conch or a combination of these. They are amazing! Shish Kabab has now opened their second location on the Autopista del Coral, it's the highway that connects to the east coast of the island. Coming from Santo Domingo, it will be after the first toll, just before the second one next to the Gas Station Next. If you are coming directly from La Romana, it will be just before the first toll. The new location offers the same menu and has created a cozy, elegant and tropical ambiance that is perfect for a road trip stop for food and refreshments. Their natural juices are a must, in addition of course to the Kipes and Empanadas, which they are famous for. If you are traveling back home from the Punta Cana airport, this will definitely be the best goodbye meal of a lovely visit.

Great to find a mid eastern restaurant in the east of DR. Always make sure to stop by and get a kipe or two when I am in La Romana. They have a nice restaurant and the wait staff is helpful and it is nice to see the owners involved as well. Definitely a recommended food stop when in town.

The quesso empanada was tasty, but the soup and the mofongo were inedible.. regarding the mofongo- it was the first (and last) time that we had this dish, so it might just be us and not the place....
We are vegetarian, so maybe better for the meat lovers...
