San Jose is a busy place. The weekends especially have the streets and parks filled with people. When I wasn't in museums (I'll post about the Jade museum tomorrow) I was wandering around looking at buildings and trying food. I managed to find churros to eat and plenty of fresh fruit smoothies. A lot of passionfruit things everywhere which is my favorite so I was pretty happy about that. I had lunch at a great little vegetarian place Vishnu Restaurante. There was a woman eating there who helped us pick out food and then treated us to pineapple chocolates. I seriously cannot say enough how kind people are in Costa Rica. A lot of meals consisted of a "typical" Costa Rican meal of cascados. Which is usually black beans, rice, grilled plantains and some grouping of other veggies. I had a grilled hearts of palm in the city with this meal and it was delicious. The food was healthy and usually cooked in palm oil as it is grown and harvested in the country. I especially liked french fries cooked in it. AND I can't even get started on the coffee. IT IS AMAZING. I brought home a decent amount of it. It smells divine.
