Gallo pinto, or ‘spotted rooster’ – rice and black beans – is Costa Rica’s ‘national dish’. After having eaten endless amounts of this simple but very tasty dish while visiting my parents last year, I suddenly developed a craving for it. It seems to be particularly popular in Costa Rica’s Central Valley region, but I had it for breakfast everywhere I went, served with scrambled eggs and/or fried plantain on the side. Sometimes the rice and beans were mixed together, while at other times served side by side on the plate. As with all dishes, regional variations exist.
