“Good place to eat in Bijagua”
Review of La Casita del Maiz

La Casita del Maiz
Cuisines: Central American
Restaurant details
Reviewed 30 June 2013

La Casita del Maiz is a simple little place a short distance west of the main part of Bijagua. It was very close to Sueno Celeste B&B where we were staying. All of the food items are made with corn, which from our experience in 3 trips to Costa Rica, is not real common. The food was delicious, the service, while in Spanish only, was excellent, and we worked through the menu finding what we wanted to eat. This restaurant is clean and you can watch as they prepare the food. They were patient with us as we arrived only about a half hour before closing, and they did not rush us.

We loved the freshly made tortillas served in a simple and friendly atmosphere.
There's a good selection of meals made from maize.

This is one of my favorites in Costa Rica. I ordered two thick corn tortillas, two tamales, and a guanabana refresco for $6. This was at 3pm in the afternoon. I wan't hungry again until the next morning. After a long day of hiking, this place can't be beat. It closes at 6pm, so make sure to get there with enough time to relax and enjoy the delicious food. Service is also excellent.
