This minimally decorated bright Dominican spot has a massive flag mural and a couple digital slot machines by the counter. But don't be distracted by the swirling rainbow lights and the prospect of winning a jackpot—you're here for Tropical Taste’s delicious food. Pillowy yellow rice pairs perfectly with peppery oxtail guisado, and their roast chicken is juicy. It’s also worth setting a reminder on your phone for daily specials like the creamy pescado con coco (a Friday exclusive). Tropical Taste is only open until 7pm, but the friendly staff will encourage you to stay and finish your moro de guandules even if they already start closing up.
