Literary translation: yucca root eater

Meaning: insult, implies that the person is unrefined, or somehow undeserving. Usually directed toward someone who thinks the opposite of him/herself.

“Come yuca” is perhaps one of the most ironic insults, given that yuca is indeed a staple of the Dominican diet and most people enjoy it.

Significado: insulto, dícese de la persona poco refinada o de escazos recursos, que hace alarde de lo que no tiene o se cree muy culta.

Use: colloquial – “Mira, come yuca!”
