  • Mondongo/Menudo

    • Documentary DP
    • News Shooter / Video Journalist

    There is a very good Dominican restaurant in DC and they do great Mondongo. They also have a great story behind, they are very popular between baseball players they do catering to almost every game, but I assume you are only interested on the cooking. Besides The Mondongo, they also have great Dominican cake.
