Irazu Restaurant Review:

The seating is limited, the pace is fast, and the Costa Rican fare includes items like burritos, which along with tacos, signature salsa and ceviche, go beyond the usual interpretation. But the dish to have is the pork chops with rice and beans. Other highlights include grilled skirt steak with yellow rice and pintos and pan-seared tilapia with yuca, black beans and a cabbage salad. It's possible --- make that wise --- to dine on non-meat eats, too, whether you make a meal of the fried yuca with garlic oil and vegetarian plate, consisting of yellow rice, beans and sweet plantains, or zucchini empanadas and a hearts of palm salad that's splashed with vinegar and lime. The tropical fruit shakes are as refreshing as the crowd is eclectic, and the take-out business is brisk. Adding to the appeal, prices are rock bottom.
