Central America is known for its flavorful food, hats made out of produce, and being the only thing preventing the South American continent from swimming away to hang out with Australia. Anchor your palate to tropical locales with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Costa Rican cuisine at Boca Restaurant & Bar in Waltham.
Whipping up a variety of dishes made with the freshest available ingredients, Boca Restaurant & Bar boasts a menu offering bite-sized takes on traditional Costa Rican, Latin American, and American dishes. The slightly sweet squashed green plantains (patacones, $3) and the mild kick of mango shrimp (camaron asado, $6) paint palates in exotic flavors and can be ordered with other small dishes to create a multifaceted main course. Or, have a small plate act as the precursor to a larger dish, such as the steak in tomato sauce (carne en salsa, $12). A tropical atmosphere showcases wicker seating and awnings plucked from a sunny beach.
- Wonderful food, with the best fried, somewhat squashed plantain with a sauce that was perfect for dipping. – webdoc, Citysearch
- The sampler platter for two contains all manner of fried deliciousness: plantains, fish, chicken, all crisped up and served with their signature black bean sauce. – Jason B., Yelp
