San José, Costa Rica, since 1956

Manuel Antonio/Quepos Tidings

We have a new Asian fast food restaurant near the soccer field in Manuel Antonio: Restaurante Ngo, primarily Vietnamese with a bit of Chinese thrown in for good measure. Tasty and reasonably priced with nothing over ₡3,000 ($6), it’s a nice alternative to normal Costa Rican fare. For information or to have your order prepared in advance, call 8730-7145.

Kenneth Milestone is having an art show Feb. 2-28 at the National Gallery inside the Children’s Museum in San José. The exhibit, entitled “Animals and Heads of State,” will include sculptures made from recycled materials. Kenneth believes that tons of waste have become a gauge for determining growth and fortune, and that it is necessary to reuse materials to create objects of value. For more information about Kenneth’s work, go to or email him at
