One of the first foods that was available in Puerto Plata as soon as I arrived was Passion Fruit, they call it Chinola over there and we call it Parchita in Venezuela. I was so happy, passion fruit is my favorite fruit and I don't get to eat it here in California. Later on I realized that they use it very often EVERYWHERE they can. How delicious. It is served fresh during breakfast or as snack. It is also added in desserts, either fresh or in the recipe. Oh and there are Chinola cocktails too! My paradise!! I ate as much as I could!
