Nicaraguan Cuisine

If you've planned a trip to Nicaragua, or are contemplating a trip there, you might be wondering what their cuisine tastes like. In spite of everything, we all are acquainted with areas in the world where the cuisine seems scary if not absolutely sickening. You can't just carry 14 days worth of microwave dinners and carry them on the airplane. So what's it similar to? Here's a brief summary of the meals of Nicaragua.

First of all, Nicaragua's wealth is increasing well, and that brings foreign ventures. And with foreign ventures come the Americans, and their chains of fast-food restaurants. Within the capitol of Managua, there are nearly as many McDonald's eateries as there are local restaurants. There are familiar café names if you're nervous regarding consuming Nicaraguan cuisine.

However, there's no reason to be fearful. The cuisine of Nicaragua is a flavorsome balance of Spanish, Creole, and Garifuna principles which nearly all people from the southern U.S. are by now familiar with, specifically in the vicinity of the Gulf of Mexico. The dishes are created from meats like beef, chicken, and seafood, therefore there are not many odd starter ingredients. To that, the natives add a selection of fresh fruits and vegetables cultivated right in the country, and season it with nearby cultivated herbs, roots, and spices. The real variation is the way every one of these ingredients are mixed together and served. You will be pleasantly amazed at how fresh and delicious the dishes are.

As far as desserts, the two native favorites are Cajeta de Coco and Tres Leches Cake. The first is a combination of yucca plant and coconut that has been caramelized and shaped into lengthy, glass-like threads. The second is a cake that has been soaked in cream, evaporated milk, and condensed milk. Both are exceptional if you aspire to taste something native.

As far as drinks, rum and beer are the alcohols of preference. It is simple to find international brands of beer if you don't feel comfortable with the Nicaraguan native brews. Non-alcoholic drinks are created mainly of fresh fruits blended along with milk or yogurt. Similar to numerous foreign countries, it's best to not sip the water if you're not positive that it's purified. Likewise, make sure to order your beverages with no ice.
