What's a trip to San Jose without eating at Cafe Mundo? Cafe Mundo mixes creative cuisine with a casual ambiance. Wood tables and Art Deco wrought-iron chairs are spread throughout several rooms in what was once a former colonial mansion. Cafe Mundo serves everything from vegetable tempura, crab cakes, and chicken satay as well as traditional Costa Rican flavor such as fried plantain chips and fried yuca. There's also pasta and pizza (which we had and it was wonderful) and other, more serious main courses. One room in Cafe Mundo has a colorful mural done by Costa Rican artis Miguel Cassafont. This places draws an eclectic crowd of San Jose's gay, bohemian, theatre, arts and university crowds.
