I was in Costa Rica (Guanacaste) in June and on our way from Playa Flamingo to Nosara, we stopped in an itty bitty town just a bridge over from Nosara. We had dinner there, of some kind of typical fried chicken, but as an appetizer, we were brought some yucca plant that had been cut into thick spears and cooked, leaving a very soft, but not falling apart, inside. It was served with some sort of cream sauce that was wonderful.
Does anyone have any idea what the name of this dish is? I bough yucca at the store yesterday and really want to try and recreate the dish for visitors.
Any help is appreciated!
PS - Does anyone else miss the REAL Orange Fanta like I do? The Orange Fanta found in hispanic countries is amazing. The American crap is just...well...crap.
