Local Dishes of Costa Rica – Photo Essay

When visiting Costa Rica the number one suggestion I make to everyone  – visit a SODA, the local eatery and enjoy homemade Costa Rica food.

Casado – this dish usually has beans, salad, plantains, rice and different meats, fish, chicken or vegetarian style.

Costa Rica food

Gallo Pinto – you haven’t eaten Costa Rican until you eat Gallo Pinto which is beans, rice, sweet peppers, onions mixed and fried together with a special sauce that is only found in Costa Rica.

Potato Hash – but it’s not the kind you are used. It’s with a saucy soupy like combination.

Cabbage salad. I love this fresh salad, it’s simple but full of flavor. They use lemon or oil as the dressing.

Casado but Caribbean style. Instead of regular rice, they have a rice and beans mixture cooked on coconut oil.
