Local Flavor of the Highest Quality
Sustainability and wellness are two main characteristics that define what La Cusinga Lodge is all about. From the handcrafted wood used to construct the buildings to the lodge’s sustainable practices and preservation of the local ecosystems. La Cusinga is a paradise meant to channel positive energy, relaxation, and well-being to its guests.
The same theme is true at the Aracari Restaurant, where the organic produce served in the dishes is harvested from trees on the property as well as purchased from local farmers. In addition, the fish served is locally caught and usually purchased straight from local fishermen. Using these practices, the Restaurant delivers its patrons organically grown, fresh food products that are both tasty and healthy.
For breakfast, guests can start their day off with an array of fruits to choose and options such as the typical Costa Rican breakfast (eggs, sausage, and tortillas) while they watch the sun rise.
Lunch choices include the typical Costa Rican lunch with fish in tomato sauce, joined by rice, beans, picadillo, and patacones. Casado with chicken fajitas and rice with shrimp also provide reinvigorating midday options.
For dinner, main entrees such as the fish with tropical mango sauce or the barbecue chicken or pork pair nicely with appetizers such as the coconut fish soup, while soaking up picturesque sunsets.
Meet the Aracari’s Chefs
The Restaurant’s chefs Eddy Quiros and Denis Umaña Dinarte are veterans of the culinary industry who demonstrate a passion for their trade and strive to impress each customer.
“I attempt to give a twist to the food so that people will remember it when they leave,” Eddy said. “In every dish I make, I want my food to transmit happiness that makes the customer satisfied and leaving the table with a smile on their face.”
In addition to creating mouth-watering meals for their guests, the chefs join management and the wait staff to deliver the finest quality of a dining experience. That breeds a sense of camaraderie between each other and with their guests as well.
“What I love most about La Cusinga is working in a quiet environment, surrounded by both nature and very friendly people who work together to make an excellent team,” said Denis.
The Aracari Restaurant stands as one of the greatest amenities of La Cusinga Lodge. Between the meals and the friendly staff, attention to the patron’s well-being and satisfaction is delivered at the Restaurant.
