Costa Vida

Similar to Cafe Rio and Bajios (which Costa Vida incidentally just bought out), Costa Vida is a fresh mexican style restaurant. I'm not sure what the official name for this kind of place is but it's fast food, high quality.

The menu is pretty simple- a few different kinds of meats and you can choose to have it as a burrito, a quesadilla, tacos, enchiladas, nachos, or as a salad.

Usually I think places like this are just so, so, but Costa Vida serves up a few things that I really love. First is the sweet pork- I have a recipe to make this at home and it is one of my favorite meals to make. Even if you don't usually like pork it's worth a try. When we went last weekend I decided to try something I had never had before: the Raspberry Chicken. It was super good. I had it in a quesadilla and loved every bite. My husband had a shredded beef burrito and it was good but to me tasted almost exactly like similar restaurants.

Costa Vida is now open in Rexburg (by Deseret Book) and will soon be open in Idaho Falls (on Hitt Road)- I recommend it, but, a little bit of warning, they charge extra for sour cream and other little extras.
