Top off the perfect meal choosing from a tempting array of homemade desserts made in our own bakery, accompanied by a cup of coffee freshly roasted at the famous local Cafe Milagro.. Traditional Foods For a typical lunch or dinner, visit one of the country's many sodas – small, family-run restaurants with a few tables and big portions – and order a casado. Here, $4 will purchase white rice, black beans, a small cabbage salad, choice of chicken, beef, pork, fish or fried egg, fried plantains and a natural fruit drink. For an afternoon snack, take a gamble on tamales (meat, vegetable, and cornmeal patties boiled or steamed in banana leaf), empanadas (choice of meat or cheese, covered in cornmeal and fried to perfection), gallos (corn or flour tortillas stacked with meat, cheese or beans) or arreglados (small meat-filled sandwiches). For those that crave a little added spice, try encurtido, a vinegar brine made with vegetables and chili peppers, or chilero, a homemade chili sauce made of peppers, onion and other secret ingredients. Drinks Refrescos or jugos naturales are Costa Rica's most ubiquitous cold beverage, gracing the tables of sodas and fine dining establishments alike. These traditional drinks consist of fresh, local fruit mixed with a bit of sugar and either milk or water to create a refreshing, healthy and delicious concoction. Vegetarians will find many options both at the property and the surrounding small towns.
