It's been a few weeks since I've blogged, but boy have I been busy! Not only was last week the greatest food holiday ever, but I spent the week before that in beautiful Playa Tamarindo, Costa Rica with Patrick & a group of our friends. We did a lot of awesome stuff like ziplining through the jungle, repelling down the side of a waterfall, horseback riding, white water rafting and surfing, but one of the very best parts of the trip was the incredible food!
Fish tacos happen to be one of my favorite foods, so I was excited to eat them non-stop for the whole week I was there. The best one I had, which also happened to be the first one I had, was at a small surfing hang-out called "Eat at Joes." It was called the Mega Taco and was the size of an overstuffed burrito. The main fish used in Costa Rica is Mahi Mahi, and this taco was a delicious mix of the fish, fresh vegetables and a homemade tortilla with a side of rice. I have always really loved rice as a side-dish to most meals, but when it comes on the side of a taco, I always stuff it into the tortilla too. This taco truly was one of the biggest tacos I've ever had, and also one of the best. The trip was off to a great start!
