While Costa Rica does offer rice and beans as part of its raw veganism, the country has more to offer for vegan travelers. It is true that you can order some veggies from local sodas. But you can have more. To prove this point, I bring you the following reasons worthy of your consideration:
Try Costa Rica’s Veggies
Every province you visit does offer the vegetables. The country’s veggie varieties are mind-boggling. Yet, the locals do not understand this. They still view Costa Rica as a country with a wide range of meaty foods.
Like mentioned above, you can order the veggies and be surprised by a large plate of rice and beans; the country offers other kinds of vegetables: vegetarians can ask for such a plate accompanied by fried cheese and eggs; the vegans can order fried plantains served with cabbage salad. If these dishes are not enough, you can still go on to order Gallo pinto, veggies, con huevos, and cheese.
Eat from Sodas with the Best Veggies
Even though you have tried vegetables in the country, I can still tell you this: there are amazing sodas with the best veggies; Soda Angel, located on the hill to Manuel Antonio, offers tasty, typical food; served with eggs, the food is cooked fresh. Meanwhile, Soda Guetto Girl One Love, based in Puerto Viejo, offers a perfect Caribbean plate of beans, coconut rice as well as spicy veggie stew, all of which are vegan.
Buy Affordable Farm markets
Another reason Costa Rica will make eating veggies a breeze is the existence of farm markets offering affordable fruits. No matter where you go; every province has these amazing farm markets. You wake up on Saturday morning to go tastiest fruits: on this weekday, the farmer’s markets offer strange fruits and veggies such as yucas, soursops, chayotes, rambutans and much more. This is your chance to buy all of the common fruits that you have been craving; you can also get the free-range eggs, not to mention the cheese and yoghurt that you can try at the market.
Do visit Costa Rica and enjoy the best vegetarian dishes that the country has to offer!
