Best dishes you have to eat at the Caribbean


Dishes which are 100% a must for food-lovers who want to try new flavours and are planning on going to the beautiful province of Limon. Take with me this culinary tour through the amazing culture and delightful cousine!

Limón is a very particular province, which has a lot of history to tell. It’s population is mainly afro-descendant due to the Jamaican immigration caused by the banana production and later on the construction of the railroad in Costa Rica. In this place many cultures converge: chineese (also due to historical reasons related to the railroad), the aborigins, who where here before everybody else as well as the europeans that have fallen in love with this amazing little piece of paradise.

This interesting combination of cultures, also enriches the spoon and dishes in a very particular way. I have for you the following list of dishes and trust me, you do not want to miss:

Rice and Beans

If you aren’t already tired of the typical “gallo pinto”, in Limón the rice and beans are eaten a bit different. It is a combination, of course, rice and beans but seasoned with coco’s milk and some sort of spiciness that gives this plate. It is normally eaten with chicken and salad.

Pargo

If you are at the coast, the best thing to order is fish. The pargo is a fried fish normally eaten with patacones and salad. Just important, be aware of the fish bones while eating.

Green plantains, which are crushed like tortillas and the fried. Very yummy also served with mashed beans and cheese.
