Traditional Boruca dinner

Traditional Boruca dinner

From left to right, starting at the top: beans, palmito (heart of palm), sweet fried plaintains, rice and carne (usually pork that has been smoked) wrapped in bijagua leaves, yucca and plaintains prepared like a ceviche salad.

This meal is eaten with hands, no plates or forks or knives, as a sign of respect to nature by only putting back into Earth what it naturally produced. As a pescatarian, I absolutely love the Bruncajc food (could eat it everyday) but it is only prepared for special times.
