Home Plate: Morena’s Kitchen Dominican Food

For Latinos, cooking serves as an ambassador for our culture. How we eat is an absolute representation of how we live. And that is… with sabor. Love. Familiarity. And most importantly, together. On La Vida Baseball, we share our stories through our perspective, our experience, and our comida. This is Home Plate, a cultural exploration of the food that makes us feel at home. For this edition of Home Plate, we visited Morena’s Kitchen in Chicago for some authentic Dominican Food. We spoke with chef and owner Mirian “Morena” Montes de Oca about her food and how its a representation of her home, the Dominican Republic. Morena’s Kitchen is located on Chicago’s North Side at 5058 W Armitage Ave, Chicago, IL 60639.
