Soda Martha: A local Ostional gem

Soda Marta in Playa Ostional

In Costa Rica, the term “soda” refers to a small, casual, and often family-owned restaurant that serves traditional Costa Rican cuisine. These sodas are a popular dining option for both locals and tourists looking to experience authentic Costa Rican food.

Typically, sodas offer a menu that includes a variety of traditional dishes such as casados (a plate with rice, beans, salad, vegetables, and a choice of meat or protein), gallo pinto (a rice and beans dish), tamales, ceviche, empanadas, and various types of grilled or stewed meats. Additionally, they often serve tropical fruit juices, such as frescos or batidos, which are refreshing beverage options.

Sodas are scattered throughout Costa Rica and can be found in towns, cities, and even along highways. They are known for their affordability and the opportunity to savor authentic Costa Rican flavors. Visiting a soda is a great way to immerse yourself in the local culinary culture while exploring the country.
