Costa Rica - Costa Rican Recipes

Read about dining out in Costa Rica

Costa Rican cuisine does not have the variety and flamboyancy as many other cuisines in the Americas. There is a certain simplicity to the foods served yet that does not mean they are not tasty. Rice and beans are the most popular items eaten by Costa Ricans. Vegetables, such as those in the squash family, fresh fruits, and beef are also prepared in a variety of dishes.

One of the most popular dishes in Costa Rica is call Gallo Pinto. It is a mixture of rice, black beans, onions, and cilantro. This dish is mostly eaten for breakfast but often it is enjoyed for lunch as well. A local hot sauce called salsa lizano is often dashed on top.

Plantains are a popular fruit in Costa Rican cuisine. A plantain is in the banana family but is cooked instead of eaten raw like the typical sweet banana. When the plantain has a green skin it has a texture similar to potatoes yet has much more starch. A fully ripened one has a sweet texture that crosses between a sweet potato and a regular banana.
