First, brush up on your Spanish. Last time we ate here, no servers spoke English beyond "Coca-Cola," and that's not even a real word. Second, prepare yourself for the fact that they serve no alcohol. Instead, order a morir soñando, a light, milky citrus drink so sweet it'll make your eyes blurry. Finally, start ordering in the best Spanish you can muster. Dominicano Internacional has a long menu of Dominican entrées that resemble Cuban or Puerto Rican cooking in their marriage of African and Spanish flavors. Whole broiled fish, pork, chicken, or beef, flavored with a spice mixture called sofrito, served with soupy beans, rice, and salads, all will transport you from Highlandtown to the sun-baked tropics. The flavors are bold, hearty, and comfortable--a nice alternative to the cheesy, overwhelmingly Americanized versions of Latino cuisine served in other corners of the Spanish-speaking areas of East Baltimore.
