lunch amidst the rainforest

What can I say.... one of the things I miss the most from Costa Rica is the food, so yesterday we went to the highlands of Alajuela to a very nice restaurant to have typical food for lunch. Patacones, tortillas, yuca frita, refried beans and carne mechada or ropa vieja among other things on the menu.

"patacones filled with guacamole, refried beans & salsa"

huge cheese tortillas with "carne mechada, picadillo de papa & refried beans"


  1. The food looks impossibly delicious!

  2. Yes, it is one of the best places for typical food and very close to the city.

  3. Anabel: What really wonderful pictures AND food! thanks so much for showing.
