When we went to Costa Rica in November of 2014, I was blown away by the fresh delicious food we encountered everywhere we went. Fresh tropical fruit at every breakfast (I know have an affinity for papaya thanks to the trip) black beans at many of the meals prepared in different ways and the literally farm to table coffee! Here’s a quick post highlighting some of the Costa Rica food we enjoyed.

Burgers and Beer?

Eating at the Surf Shack in Costa Rica

Yes, we went for burgers and fries one day! But the Surf Shack in Nosara was so yummy we couldn’t resist!

Craft Beer in Costa Rica

Grainy picture, but we finally found some craft beer. Not something they do a lot of there. Good for the day, but not one I’d see out later.

  1. One of the dangers of being a food writer is that my research makes me so damn hungry! These photos are great Tonya! I’d be very interested to read a post about how you shoot them. Specifically: What kind of camera do you use? and Do you have any tips on setting up a good shot?
    It’s something I’m trying to improve myself.

  2. MMMMM I love Costa Rica, and I love the food! I spent 3.5 months there in college on a study program, and got to live with a Costa Rican family. They had 3 boys, and I was a skinny white girl – they really tried to fatten me up! Anyway, the thing I miss the most is the FRESH fruit all the time, the coffee, and the BREAD. Did you ever get to eat some of the cheesy bread? I can’t remember what they called it, but there was a Panaderia near the “school” I went to, and they sold this freshly baked bread with cheese in it. It was so yummy.

    1. No, I never got any of the bread. It sounds good. I did learn how to make homemade tortillas though. I will post that recipe soon.
