100% Delicias Express Now Serving Up Delicious Dominican Food

100% Delicias Express opened its doors on Centre Street for the first time on Sunday and there was quickly a steady stream of eager customers. 100% Delicias Express is a sister restaurant of the same name on Hyde Park Avenue and both offer a large and varied menu. Unlike the restaurant in Hyde Park Avenue, the new Jamaica Plain spot only has a few tables for customers in its small space at 660A Centre St. The JP version sells 10 different types of empanadas, including a ricotta & spinach version, a crabmeat one and quipe (deep fried bulgur). The empanadas are one of owner Civelis Marte's favorites.
