Costa Rica’s gastronomy

The Arroz con Pollo
Is a very simple dish made with rice and chicken; there is no recipe as such, so it will not be the same wherever you decide to have it.
The Olla de Carne
Made with meat, potatoes, carrots, bananas, manioc, sweet potato and chayote. It is accompanied by white rice, which is served separately.
Prepared by frying the pork in lard, accompanied by tortillas, manioc, lemon, salad and tomatoes. Like many things here, this dish is seasoned with coriander.
