If you are traveling in the Dominican for a long period of time and find yourself eating out a lot, you might need a break from Dominican traditional food. For me, I was craving something familiar and flavorful. I spent three weeks in Sosua, eating out every single day. I was a little tired of pizza, salad, beans and rice and fried fish.
Chi chi’s Burrito Hut is a tiny little hole in the wall place in the tourist district of Sosua. It seats a total of about 15 people if you try really hard. Five people can fit inside on bar stools at a counter, and about 10 can be seated outside on the sidewalk under big umbrellas. The relatively new owner of this little spot is Canadian, friendly and serves up a great chicken enchilada!
I ate at Chichi’s four days in a row for lunch in August 2012. I went the first day with one friend and then we were so happy with our meals that other friends wanted to go the next three days.
They have a great menu full of Mexican delights. Enchiladas, burritos, tacos and much more. Although the chicken enchiladas reined as my favorite, I have nothing but good things to say about all of the dishes that I tried, including burritos, quesadillas and tacos.
The Enchiladas were served hot on a skillet, smothered in delicious melted cheese and were surprisingly filling. Salsa, sour cream and guacamole on the side, paired with a coke, my meal came to about $350 RD. The burritos and tacos were slightly cheaper, but for the love of cheese, the extra $100 RD was worth it to have the enchiladas!
Service was pleasant and appropriately paced for the Dominican. Don’t stop in expecting ‘fast food’, this is a small restaurant in the Dominican, but none-the-less, we were always able to arrive, eat and pay within about 45 minutes. Remember, good things take time in the Dominican! Take your time and stop to check out this delightful little spot for some tasty Mexican food.
