Sin Domicilio Fijo
Would you like to know what you get when you combine art, gastronomy and colonial architecture?
In this article we are going tell you, so follow us on the journey!
A few days ago, we had the opportunity to visit Sin Domicilio Fijo (which means no fixed address or unknown address), a place where gastronomy, art and colonial architecture come together in what we believe is an outstanding combination.
You should know by now that we love to know more about the places we visit, so we got in touch with Diana Casco and arranged a meeting to visit them and learn more about this special place.
Sin Domicilio Fijo, was open in May 2015 after Mrs. Paloma Florez-Estrada, who is an interior designer, had the idea of giving the public a place where they could find products of national and international designers.
With great style they started their business in a colonial house considered a national heritage with more than 150 years old located in Escazu, which remains virtually intact and the house alone tells a great story just by being there.
Where does the name Sin Domicilio Fijo comes from? We were asking ourselves the same question!
Diana Casco tells us that the name comes from the idea of wanting to give a “home" to all those art pieces that up until that point in Costa Rica were hard to find all in one place.
After sometime of serving as a "home" for many designers to show their creations and connect people with their work, the idea to create a Gourmet Café where people could taste high quality dishes was born, all this within the same colonial house.
When you walk into Sin Domicilio Fijo you will be received by so many amazing art pieces that you will be left open - mouthed. You can roam through the many rooms of the house and see from tiny ornaments to handmade tables, to cushions, hammocks, wood and metal pieces, lamps, paintings, furniture and much more.
In the back of the house, where the courtyard of the house was 150 years ago, lies the small but very cozy and elegant Gourmet Cafe, where we are going to make a stop for to give you a more detailed description of some of dishes they have in their menu.
This Cafe specializes in haute cuisine making it a great combination with all the art displayed around the house, you can truly see art reflected in this small café, from the actual dishes they use to serve the food to the small details around each table.
Already very thrilled about this place and with very high expectations of their food, we decided to start our gourmet journey with a Pejibaye Ceviche as an appetizer, to move on to a Caprese Panini and a Beet Ravioli with Blue Cheese as main dishes, all accompanied by 100% natural fruit drinks.
Let's pause right here and talk about each one of these dishes in detail:
The Pejibaye Ceviche was definitely amazing, they prepared it with a liquid combination of coconut milk and lemon where they add delicious pieces of pejibaye, along with mint leaves, cilantro, red onions marinated in lemon juice and to decorate edible flowers and dehydrated sweet potato chips.
With the first bite we were completely speechless, we could only look in each other’s eyes and smile, because that was the moment we knew we were about to have a great dining experience.
Are we making you hungry yet? Well, we are just getting started!
The Caprese Panini was without a doubt one of the best we've ever had. Fresh buffalo mozzarella cheese, tomato, basil and arugula pesto, all this inside a nice and toasted panini bread.
A side of a lettuce and basil salad accompanies this panini, as well as a portion of dehydrated sweet potato chips with a splash of coconut oil which gives it a sweet and delicious taste.
The Beet Ravioli has a delicious filling of blue cheese, caramelized apples and walnuts, all that with a tangy sauce of butter, lemon, thyme and blue cheese.
It basically sounds like a work of art, don't you think? Believe us it truly was, not only because of its flavors but also because of the careful presentation of every dish.
Sin Domicilio Fijo is definitely a place you must visit, is a great combination where you can enjoy the talent of more than 70 artists as well as the colonial architecture of the house and to top it off you can enjoy a gastronomic experience for either breakfast, lunch or afternoon coffee, worthy of an applause.
We are very grateful to Diana, Walter and all the friendly staff for their hospitality and for guiding us on this trip that leaves us with a smile from ear to ear and eager to return.
