Authentic Costa Rica Food
One 'Married Man' for Lunch please ...
Finding the best Costa Rica food is not a
difficult task if you live here, but if you are visiting Costa Rica for
the first time there are couple of things you need to know prior to
visit any restaurant, no matter if you plan to eat on a small
restaurant near a park or in a pricey place in downtown, everyone knows
what a 'Casado' is.
The Casado is the typical Costa Rican lunch, it
includes: rice, beans, plantain, vegetables, salad, tortillas and a
piece of meat, chicken or fish.
By the way, at lunch time is also pretty common to
see people having a casado in front of the television, I know it is a
bad habit but most Costarican workers keep up to date with the news at
12:30 ( Yes I do it too ).
Casado in American english means 'married man',
however if you are a woman having lunch in Costa Rica and suddenly your
husband calls you asking what you’re doing, and you reply 'Hi dear I am
having a married man', you better explain him a what a Casado is
otherwise you might be in trouble…
Costa Rica Food for Breakfast
The Gallo Pinto is what we eat in the morning, I have heard a lot of
tourist saying that our breakfast is very hard and now that I think
about it maybe they are right.
The Gallo Pinto is basically rice, beans cooked
with onion, chili, cilantro, and Lizano salsa; but a full Costa Rican
breakfast should have:
Gallo pinto, eggs, cheese or sour cream,
tortillas, plantain, an orange juice and a cup of coffee, is it too
much ? Well we also add some fresh fruits.
