Identifying where the locals eat is one of the things my husband and I like to do when we travel. We found many such places in Costa Rica and boy, was the food good or what? Delicioso!!
Their typical plate would be set in front of you with rice, beans, salad, a choice of meat, and their ever famous fried bananas. If this is not a balanced meal, what is?
Don’t assume you will be served with rice and beans, the kind you get at Taco Bell kind or other Mexican restaurants in the US. The rice retains its white in most places but yet so full of flavor and the beans are not refried, but just cooked black beans. About the bananas, though I am not in favor of deep fried food, I couldn’t stop myself from not finishing off my plate without biting into this yummy dessert. Now for a nice siesta!!
