Gallo Pinto

Gallo Pinto is the typical breakfast in Costa Rica. It consists of rice and beans mixed together (not separate like the casado), fried or scrambled eggs, chopped beef, fried plantains, and tortillas. A popular custom in Costa Rica is to pour Salsa Lizano over the gallo pinto. Salsa Lizano is a sweet greenish brown salsa with the faintest hint of spice.

Where to eat it: Gallo Pinto can be found in any restaurant or soda, and although it is a breakfast food, it can be ordered at any time of day.

Olla de Carne

Olla de Carne is a flavorful and nutrient-rich stew made with huge chunks of beef, potatoes, carrots, chayotes, plantains, yuccas, sweet potatoes, green plantains, and camotes.

Where to eat it: At any typical Costa Rican restaurant or soda.
