Welcome to Parada Tipica El Choco for Christmas Fondue Week!

RSVP at Parada Tipica El Choco restaurant
Carr. Sosua – Cabarete
opposite Sosua Ocean Village
Nothing better than to get together with friends and get all cozy and share a pot of bubbly melted cheese. Combined with some good wine and a basket full of bread. While I’m at it, add a good bottle of kirsch… I mean it’s that time of year; when winter sets in and the weather creates that perfect opportunity for warm and cozy meals at home. You know where I’m headed with that one? Yep, cheese fondue.
Luckily we have Parada Tipica el Choco. At this magical place, located just before Sosua, you can not only get cheese fondue, but also the Swiss chalet including yodeling music. Parada Tipica el Choco is one of my favorite restaurants out there. The owner is Swiss German and knows his stuff. He built this mini Swiss chalet (in his restaurant) where he cranks up the AC and puts on Swiss tunes. The inside has real cow bells, random mini sculptures of Swiss figurines, and he even brought his own alpine horn. Once you’re sat comfortably on your bench with cute little embroidered pillows, plus decoration, plus a good bottle of wine, trust me! Cheese fondue can be appreciated even though outside the real Caribbean world is flaming out heat and merengue rhythms are blasted out. So yeah, I guess in a way, that chalet is my teleporting devise
But let’s get back to the cheese fondue. This typically Swiss dish has also spread across to the middle east side of France. There are different types of fondue, depending on the specialty of the region or country. So what makes a fondue a certain type? The cheese one uses to make it. The classic on is “moitié-moitié” which is half Gruyere and half Vacherin. Vacherin is a semi-hard type of cheese with a nutty like flavor. It’s produced both in Switzerland and France.
