Delicious Costa Rican Food
La Casona del Maiz - Typical Restaurant
La Casona del Maiz is the best option if you are
looking for real Costa Rican food in downtown, it offers delicious
variety, good location and excellent service at a reasonable price. La
Casona have two locations and both in the city of Alajuela,
in 'La Garita' and the other one on the road to
'Barrio San Jose'.
The first Restaurant opened in 2000 with the
purpose of rescue the Costa Rican Traditions while proving delicious
meals to their visitors.
Fortunately everything went well and they decided
to opened a second restaurant in 2009, this time closer to downtown
giving a great advantage to people from Alajuela town.

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.
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.
