What's the best of Costa Rican Food ?


I do not know if everyone likes rice, but the reality is that in Costa Rica we eat a lot of it, specially because the two most popular Costa Rican dishes need it: The Casado and the Gallo Pinto. costa rican food 2

The agriculture also contributes a lot in the diet of the Costa Rican citizen with products like: vegetables, rice, beans,  and plenty of fruits.

If you come to Costa Rica please taste the local food, I have nothing against fast food, but if you really want to get in touch with the culture, start with the food, you will not regret it.
