Founded by a husband and wife team, The Heights Dominican Kitchen is a great choice for anyone who appreciates trying authentic food from around the world. Both founders were born to Dominican immigrants and brought up in New York City's Washington Heights, hence the name. The pair founded the cart to help bring their culture's traditions to the Raleigh-Durham, NC area, so it's a great choice if you want a crash course in Dominican cuisine.
The Heights prides itself on creating both traditional foods and foods with a twist. The food is simple, but delectable due to the rich array of spices, sauces, and other seasonings. Ever tried chimichurri? This sauce is a slightly balsamic blend of aromatic spices like garlic, oregano, and parsley and used in many dishes at The Heights. Plantains, a traditional cuisine in the Dominican Republic, are served in many forms and ingredients like brown sugar make their mildly sweet flavor pop. Speaking of sweet, homemade custards and flans are served for dessert. Flavors vary, so there's always something new to try! If this sounds delicious to you, book The Heights Dominican Kitchen for your next event. It's sure to be a winner!
