-----------
DINING IN SAN JOSE REFLECTS THE WONDERFUL COMBINATIONS OF
CULTURAL SPECIALITIES AND LOCAL FOODS. EVERY GASTRONOMIC
SENSATION IS AVAILABLE; NIGHTLY, FAMOUS COSTA RICAN CHEFS
ARE AT WORK CREATING EVERYTHING FROM DELICIOUS NATIVE
COSTA RICAN DISHES TO COMPLETE MENUS FROM THE WORLD OF
INTERNATIONAL SELECTIONS INCLUDING FRENCH, ITALIAN,
SPANISH, CHINESE AND JAPANESE CUISINE. YOU WILL ALSO FIND
MANY AMERICAN FASTFOOD RESTAURANTS. OUTSIDE OF SAN JOSE,
MANY SMALL HOTELS, MOUNTAIN RESORTS, AND ROADSIDE RES-
TAURANTS PROVIDE EXCEPTIONAL OPPORTUNITIES FOR NEW DINING
EXPERIENCES.

TYPICAL FOOD:
CASADO, OLLA DE CARNE, SOPA NEGRA & PICADILLO. POPULAR SNACKS
ARE GALLOS, TORTAS, ARREGLADOS & PAN DE YUCA.

DRINKS:
WINES IMPORTED FROM EUROPE ARE EXPENSIVE AND THE MORE
REASONABLY PRICED WINES ARE MAINLY FROM CHILE. QUALITY
VARIES WIDELY.
ALL THE WELL KNOWN PROPRIETARY BEVERAGES ARE AVAILABLE,
PLUS A LARGE VARIETY OF LOCALLY PRODUCED BEERS, FRUIT
JUICES AND LIQUORS, MOST OF THESE ARE EXCELLENT.

ALTHOUGH COSTA RICA IS ONE OF THE WORLD'S MAJOR EXPORTERS
OF TOP QUALITY COFFEE, THE LOCAL TASTE IS FOR COFFEE
DRUNK CONSIDERABLY WEAKER THAN THE USUAL EUROPEAN TASTE.
