As anyone who knows me is likely to verify… I like to eat! Occasionally, you can find a comment someone has made about a restaurant they liked (or hated) in Costa Rica, but until now, there has been no central repository of information, recommendations or general commentary on where to get a good meal in Costa Rica. I am going to TRY to change that!
About a week ago, I launched a new web site, Costa Rica Eateries I am happy to state that we have FOURTEEN amateur.. or maybe professional, food critics on board and I hope we can add a ton more. So far, Hooters has been a popular topic, but I am sure that will change a bit in time as the novelty wears off. We also need to see more reviews from the coasts!
As Costa Rica has become a hot spot for tourism over the past few years, not unexpectedly, there have been a slew of new eateries popping up all over the country. My wife and I like to dine out, and we generally do so about once per week, so as we do, I plan to add my thoughts on these places.
I don’t know about you, but I am not always happy with the “professional” reviews you see here and there. I enjoy good food, but I am not a gourmet and would often rather hear from a friend or acquaintance of a new place to eat. For instance I enjoy a good wine… but I cannot identify a Effete LePew 1963 from Ripple. The gourmets kinda go over-the-top on stuff when all I really wanna know is: 1. Is the food good? and 2. What does it cost?
But with everyone who discusses restaurants, I eventually know exactly whose opinion is worth listening to and whose opinion is maybe less fitting my tastes. i.e I know who to believe!
So all you locals and visitors to Costa Rica, take five minutes and share what you know about your favorite Costa Rica restaurant… good or bad! Costa Rica Eateries!Filed under Costa Rica, Life in Costa Rica, Other Stuff, Recipes, Travel | Comments (3)
