Restaurante La Criollita

Restaurante La Criollita

This charming local restaurant in San José’s Barrio Amón serves up large portions of Costa Rican breakfasts (read: gallo pinto and more gallo pinto). You can even watch as the staff prepares your dish in the open kitchen. Because the restaurant is set in a busy neighborhood, the meal can be ordered “express,” which is truly a novelty in this country.
